Geneva 1973 to 1975
The working phase of negotiations amounted to the first multilateral East-West negotiation process. During this phase, issues were grouped together into three major “baskets.” The inclusion of such a wide range of issues reflected a comprehensive approach to security that remains one of the OSCE’s greatest assets.
|I.||Security and confidence-building measures.|
|II.||Cooperation on economics, science and technology, and the environment.|
|III.||Human rights and the movement of peoples, ideas, and information across national boundaries.|
The three baskets are also referred to as “dimensions” of security.
