The osce’s Competence and Capability in Conflict Management: The Case of Georgia

image of Security and Human Rights
For more content, see Helsinki Monitor.

Rather than attempt to change its decision-making procedures and aim at strengthened normativity, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (osce) should embrace its original purpose and design. This article argues that the Organisation is both competent and capable in conflict management. In particular in conflict management and resolution, the Organisation is both competent and capable in conflict management. As the case of alleged failure in Georgia demonstrates, the misses the osce had arrived not from the institutional design or decision-making procedures but rather from the weakness of its analytical capability and communication. Even if the osce Mission finished its work in Georgia in 2009, the organisation has continued to work on the conflict resolution on the local and on the political level, and it has succeeded in passing its expertise and knowledge to the European Union Monitoring Mission to Georgia.
