With Philip Remler as the head of project the objective was to provide a menu of innovative ways in which the international community can engage with all sides in the four so-called “frozen conflicts” – protracted conflicts on the territory of the former USSR that include the Karabakh, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and Transdniestria conflicts . The project was a collective effort of more than a dozen member institutions of the OSCE Network and about forty participants of a workshop conducted in Vienna in July 2016. The project’s final report was elaborated by a group of sixteen experts with Philip Remler of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Washington, D.C. as principal drafter. The paper was launched in Hamburg in parallel with the 23rd OSCE Ministerial Council Meeting in December 2016. The project was sponsored by the German Federal Foreign Office.
