Summary note
A file of correspondence and reports concerning the legal aspects of the agreements concluded at the conference on European security, discussing the principles outlined in the conference's "final act". Topics covered by the final act included sovereign equality -- the renunciation of the threat of force -- the inviolability of frontiers -- the territorial integrity of states -- the peaceful settlement of disputes -- the non-intervention in the internal affairs of other countries -- respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms -- equal rights and the self-determination of peoples -- cooperation among states -- and the fulfilment in good faith of obligations under international law. Other documents in the file discuss how the "Brezhnev Doctrine" could be justified under the conference's principles -- and how the final act is not a treaty or a legally binding international agreement.
