Policy vacuum

Other Names:
Absence of appropriate policies
Absence of any central organizing principle for foreign policy

Meeting in 1993, foreign ministers of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe recognized their inability to stop wars from Bosnia-Herzegovina to Nagorno-Karabakh. No ways had been found to deal with resurgent nationalism. It was recognized that the international community was essentially helpless as far as the causes of conflicts were concerned. Preventive diplomacy, when possible, is often too little and too late.
