Since 2003, the Parliamentary Assembly of the OSCE (OSCE PA) has constantly emphasised the importance of reconciling democratic values, respect for human rights and the fight against terrorism.

In the light of the growing interest of the members of the OSCE PA in the controversial case of Guantanamo and of their desire for a parliamentary delegation to be permitted to visit the site, the former President of the OSCE PA , Congressman Alcee Hastings, decided to appoint a Special representative on Guantanamo. He entrusted this mandate to Anne-Marie Lizin, President of the Belgian Senate.

Since then, she has conducted a thorough examination of the question, particularly after her visit to Guantanamo Bay in March 2006, and the substance thereof and the recommendations she made in her first two reports are contained in this article.

Anne-Marie Lizin proposed the creation of an international commission of experts tasked with continuing to reflect on a possible development of international law with regard to the general question of 'new categories of combatants' and of the recent development of terrorism. She will present a third report on Guantanamo during the annual summer session of the OSCE PA in Kiev in July 2007.
