The OSCE Yearbook 2009 contains contributions written by leading European security experts on such topics as: the possibility that Europe needs a "new security architecture," the future of detente, Russian President Medvedev's initiative for a European Security Treaty, the Corfu Process, and the implications of US foreign policy in the post-Bush era for Europe. The participating States that take focus this year are Ukraine, Lithuania, and Belarus, together with past and future Chairmanship-holders Finland and Kazakhstan. The OSCE conflict prevention and dispute settlement activities that are examined include the prospects for conflict resolution in Moldova, the role of the mission in Kosovo, the military aspects of the OSCE mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina, the OSCE Center in Astana, and the prospects for conflict settlement in Nagorno-Karabakh. The contributions also include an in-depth consideration of the OSCE's election observation activities and an informed legal discussion of de facto regimes and human rights. As well, the book discusses the problems facing human rights defenders, the contradictions in international police reform, the OSCE's approach to border security and management, and the legacy of Professor Victor Yves Ghebali, who died this year.
