To change our perceptions: The economy, ecology and European security edited by Rob Zaagman1 Introduction There is a need for a change in the perception and treatment of economic and environmental issues. Building on the Budapest Document of 1994, we would advocate a new look at economic and ecological issues strictly from a security angle, i.e. focusing on those issues which could in the short to medium term lead to (violent) conflict.2 2 The main focus of activities of the Organisation for Security and Co- operation in Europe (OSCE) is on the prevention of (violent) conflict in the OSCE area. To that end, it employs a comprehensive concept of security which presupposes that a variety of aspects be taken into account by the decision- making bodies of the organisation. However, the economic/ecological dimen- sion of the OSCE is virtually absent from the OSCE conflict prevention agenda, that is to say, economic and ecological issues are not perceived as (near- future) security threats. The OSCE emphasis in these areas is exclusively on the transition to free-market economies and democracy, safely tucked away in the deliberations of the Senior Council when meeting as the Economic Forum where they are treated
