Human Rights and the Helsinki Accord: Focus on U.S. Policy. Headline Series No. 264.
This booklet traces the development of the 1973 Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) in Helsinki. The conference came to symbolize detente in Europe and was comprised of 33 countries in Europe, as well as the United States and Canada.

The book offers an assessment of foreign policy in the intervening decade since the conference.

Monographs in FPA's Headline Series are published approximately four times a year and are intended as a resource for teachers and students in the foreign policy area. Each monograph: is about a world area or topic; is written by a noted scholar; is brief (usually 64 pages); is written to be highly readable; includes basic background, maps, charts, discussion guides, and suggested reading.
