Abstract

After more than thirty-five years it is rather difficult to imagine or – if one is old enough – to recall how the world looked like between 1975 and 1978, the years between the signing of the Final Act of Helsinki and the adoption of the short concluding document of the first Follow-up Meeting, which took place in Belgrade in 1977/78. The Belgrade meeting is in the recollection of even those who were engaged in the CSCE in those early years easily overshadowed by the Final Act on the one side and the Follow-up Meetings at Madrid and Vienna on the other. The latter lasted for years and resulted in substantial documents, the result of long and often tedious negotiations. So Belgrade, with its relatively short duration and certainly short document by any CSCE standard, was generally neglected or even forgotten. Still, the Belgrade Meeting deserves attention and that was given thirty years later in an academic conference conceived and organized by the OSCE Mission to Serbia and the Zikic Foundation, which took place in March 2008. The papers of this conference were collected in a book that was published last year and now lies before us. In
