Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe


Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe
   (CSCE)
   Established in 1975 at a meeting of world leaders in Helsinki. One of its aims was to increase democracy in Europe, and a development of this has been the protection of minority rights. Both the participating states and the associated nongovernmental organizations have taken on board the Gypsy issue. At the CSCE follow-up meeting in Helsinki in 1992 and the CSCE Council meeting in Rome in 1993, it was proposed and confirmed that the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights-an institution of the CSCE - would organize a number of specialized meetings. The seventh of these seminars dealt with Gypsies in the CSCE region and took place in Warsaw in September 1994. A consolidated summary of the discussions was published by the CSCE. In 1994 the CSCE became the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
