Training course for CIS university professors and research institute staff “New Global Security Reality: the Changing Nature of Threats in the XXI Century”, Moscow 30.03.2013

training_2.JPGOn March 26 – 30, 2013, the PIR Center is conducting a training course for CIS university professors and research institute staff, “New Global Security Reality: the Changing Nature of Threats in the XXI Century.”  

While changes in the world economy and politics and technological progress provide opportunities for development, they also pose greater threats to strategic stability, WMD proliferation, and renewed arms races. Military and politics are interwoven throughout all spheres of international affairs, and a new global security reality is emerging.

In some universities in Russia and the CIS, global security disciplines have been taught for a number of years already and at a high level, whereas in others, the syllabus is still being introduced. In both cases, it is important for the teaching staff to be aware of the latest events as well as understand their essence, factors which influence a certain state or organization’s position, peculiarities of current international negotiations, and details of discussions among experts.
