Ukraine's European integration through the OSCE

Document Type


Publication Date



Quite often European integration is viewed too narrowly as only an economic phenomenon that mainly takes place in the European Union. However, according to the approach that is suggested here, European integration occurs in a variety of fields and is performed within a wide range of organizations acting in Europe. Frequently, the role of regional organizations is overlooked or disregarded, but, having established a framework for integration, they became a necessary means for the process of integration. Furthermore, the role of these institutions has become much more important in the process of the "return to Europe" of the former Soviet states in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). In addition, it is also possible to determine a level of integration for each particular state into European region.
