EDITORIAL Twenty years ago, thirty-five participating states signed the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE). A bridge between East and West was thereby constructed that help connect the winding road that would eventually take the world beyond the Cold War. Renamed the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), this multilateral body finds itself once again at an important historic watershed.

In his foreword to this issue, - the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, His Excellency Laszlo Kovacs, Foreign Minister of Hungary, reviews several of the unique characteristics of the OSCE during the era of East-West confrontation and the unforeseen opportunities it created, particularly of the states of Central and Eastern Europe. This is followed by a discussion of the deliberate choice of the OSCE community of states to place preventive diplomacy at the centre of its activities.
