Operations Centre also created the position of liaison officer to become a point of contact between the OSCE and other international organisations, both military and civilian, that might be involved alongside the OSCE in regions experiencing conflict. The new Operations Centre includes a ‘situation room’ which can maintain contact at all times (24 hours a day, seven days a week) with all field operations and can relay information from the field to secretariat officials and to the chairman-in-office on very short notice. The mandate for the Operations Centre includes three

state actors who endorse the norms and make normative socialisation a part of their agenda” ( 1998 , 519). Once this process has taken place, states become norm entrepreneurs at the international level. They then need to secure the support of key international organisations, which Finnemore and Sikkink refer to as the institutionalisation of the emergent norm ( 1998 , 900) and define as “the way norms become embedded in international organisations and institutions” (Finnemore 1996a , 161). The existing literature has explored the emergence of

World War key players of the Movement moved on to projects and positions associated with newly formed international organisations and ‘universalist’ ideologies. For example, John Grierson became UNESCO’s Head of Communications (for a short spell), while Basil Wright and Paul Rotha directed and produced the UNESCO film World Without End (1953).

(Bache & Flinders 2005, 1; Milward 1994 ). Indeed, ASEAN is a prime example of an international organisation which exists to shore up member states’ internal sovereignty, since the ‘ASEAN way’ ensures non-interference in member states’ domestic affairs as well as heightened international status through the principle of strength in numbers.

It is indeed the only way to combine as well as may be international organisation with national freedom.51 Later on, in 1942–43, Mitrany, in an echo of Cobban’s fears, pointed out to a Fabian Society meeting on post-war organisation that ‘national planning’ had had the potential to create a ‘nationalistic trend’ contrary to the international aspirations of the world

. Subsequent chapters will look at some of the key themes that had emerged from the Versailles process and from the PWP of the Second World War as contentious issues between the Powers; in particular the question of international organisation, that of how economic considerations should play a role in the NWO and, finally, how far the principles of self-determination and human rights should be allowed to inform the norms and rules of an emerging international society.
