The OSCE: A problem child with growth disorders1 Peter Kooijmans The United Nations has not been terribly popular in the year in which it celebrates its fiftieth anniversary, mainly because of the relative lack of success of its peacekeeping operations in a number of countries. It is, however, often remarked that if the organization did not exist it would in any event have to be established. No such thing is said about the 20-year-old CSCE/oSCE.

Nonetheless, the latter is in my view more important than the displays of European bad temper which substantially dominated the media coverage of the meeting. The lack of progress in equipping the
