ASIL - the American Society of International Law - is having an event recognising the 30th anniversary of the OSCE - Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. For those unfamiliar you may want to check this out. This was the major regional international legal-political development of the Cold War period, and one of the major regional international law developments after World War II and the creation of the United Nations. It started July 3rd, 1973 as the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe or the CSCE. In 1975 the Conference ended with acceptance of the Helsinki Declaration (Helsinki is in Finland; think Nokia), also known as "The Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe," on August 1, 1975. Its international law reference is 14 I.L.M. 1292. From the University of Minnesota Human Rights (reference) Library: "The Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe, which opened at Helsinki on 3 July 1973 and continued at Geneva from 18 September 1973 to 21 July 1975, was concluded at Helsinki on 1 August 1975," when the Helsinki Declaration was accepted. In 1995 the CSCE became OSCE. OSCE's headquarters is in Vienna, the capital of Austria - the country that produced both Adolf Hitler and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
