This compilation of different articles by authors from accross the region is dedicated to looking at the political, economic and regional transformation processes and developments that are shaped by international and regional policies, social movements as well as influenced by the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The region ranges from North America to Europe, to Central Asia and to China. Recent economic and security policies as well as democratization processes cut through the OSCE Region and are equally challenging the post-Soviet countries as well as Europe and North America in several different ways. Most OSCE member states face economic difficulties and suffer from weak formal institutions and defective democratic structures, or are still in the challenging early consolidation process of state and regime building.
