The Human Dimension of the OSCE From Standard-Setting to Implementation Audrey Glover' Introduction When the Final Act of Helsinki was adopted in August 1975, the participating states included several provisions on human rights in two of its so-called 'baskets' (the first and the third chapter). Since the adoption of this landmark document, a number of other instruments, also relevant for human rights, have been adopted at several meetings held within the framework of the CSCE. The human dimension has over the years developed into a detailed catalogue of rights, including innovative mechanisms to implement them and, more recently, institutions to assist participating states in the implementation of their human rights commitments. While the concept of the 'Human Dimension of the CSCE' has been in use for a long time, it only became official at the Vienna Meeting in 1989 when it was introduced by the western delegations in their proposal for a mechanism to monitor compliance with CSCE commitments on human rights and human contacts.
