European security and defence policy is one of today’s main topics. One of the reasons for this, is the high number of operations conducted by the European players in regards to its crisis management. The second reason we can find in the actual substance. Testament to this is Europe’s fight for global peace and stability. To achieve this, the robust international presence is imperative. Especially in places, where following an armed conflict the state’s structure is destroyed and aiding the creation of the new political structure, as well as levelling the democratic playing field is needed. Operations conducted in crisis management are not limited to European ground only. In the creation of global and regional stability, which is paramount from Europe’s point of view due to its nature, a shift occurred: from military power to civilian power. This justifies the need to deal with European security, with particular regard to crisis management and international actors, including the OSCE and its role in Ukraine. I prefer this analysis to be a theoretical approach (thought provoking) than to fully present the Ukrainian crisis. And I look at it from the point of view of the OSCE.
