Security Days: Revitalising military confidence-building, risk reduction and arms control in Europe
Re-launching politico-military dialogue on confidence-building, risk reduction and arms control is critical in the current political and security environment in Europe. It also represents a necessary prerequisite for rebuilding mutual trust and restoring co-operative security in the OSCE area.
The roundtable generated concrete proposals and inject fresh ideas on subjects such as preventing and managing military incidents, strengthening multilateral crisis response and risk reduction in the politico-military dimension and re-launching conventional arms control. As a Track 1.5 initiative, the roundtable aimed to complement on-going discussions in the OSCE Forum for Security Co-operation as well as other related bodies and structures, and provide further impetus to this crucially important process. It also provided an opportunity to elaborate on the recent arms control initiative announced by the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, H.E. Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Participation at this event was restricted to the Delegations of the OSCE participating States only.
