In this lecture, Zane Šime will present her recent research that touches upon the role of the OSCE in the domains of mixed migration flows and environment captured by the UNU-CRIS Working Paper “Mediterranean Lasagne of Migration Governance: What is the Way Forward for the Regions in Governing the Euromestic Sphere? An EU-Centric Perspective” and the OSCE Academy Policy Brief “The Role of Environment and Climate in Reshaping Comprehensive Security”.
Research forms a considerable proportion of understanding about the work and impact of the OSCE. Recognising this crucial role of knowledge production, complex interregionalism is the suggested framework for future analysis of the role that the OSCE, its Economic and Environmental Dimension and the Environment and Security Initiative play in comprehensive (co-)governing of security in Europe. It has proven a promising perspective on how to discern the role of the OSCE amidst the European migration crisis. The Mediterranean turbulences shed light on the strengths and challenges associated with the existing modes of multilateral cooperation. Reinvigorated attention to the complementarities delivered by other key European forums deserves further attention to discern the unique value-added of the OSCE and sustainability of its achieved results.
Zane Šime is a policy analyst focusing on EU macro-regional governance, regionalism, EU science diplomacy towards the Southern Neighbourhood, and the EU-India educational diplomacy in a broader context of the Asia-Europe Meeting.
