Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the way the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is monitoring the implementation by its 56 participating States of their commitments in the field of the Human Dimension (HD). It discusses some basic features of the OSCE Human Dimension, it cannot be surprising that the monitoring process within the organisation is also of a highly political character. Indeed, in the absence of any legal basis for the functioning of the OSCE as an organisation, it also lacks monitoring instruments of a legal or quasilegal character, and in this sense the OSCE differs widely from the Council of Europe with its multitude of legal and quasi-legal monitoring instruments. In addition to the general monitoring procedures and instruments, the OSCE has also developed a number of, sometimes highly sophisticated, monitoring instruments and mechanisms specifically for the HD.

Keywords: human dimension (HD); monitoring instruments; monitoring procedures; OSCE
