“Just a few months ago in April 2015 the global Conference on Cyberspace didn’t give much optimism to those expecting a unison of voices in favour of an international agreement on norms of state behaviour in cyberspace. Now four months later the UN Group of Governmental Experts — a team of representatives from 20 countries acting voluntarily — have emerged from their fourth session in the past decade with a vision of the minimum norms to be adopted by the states to ensure a more secure digital future. While the resolution stating the agreed measures is clearly a progress and success for the Group at the times of scarce trust and mutual understanding among nations, there are certainly caveats and challenges to these achievements to face and consider in the following months and years”. — Alexandra Kulikova, PIR Center Program Coordinator “Global Internet Governance and International Information Security”.

“The PIR Center raised our awareness of historical and contemporary nuclear issues. We also learned about nuclear non-proliferation concerns, as well as next-generation conventional weapons that can potentially offset the delicate nuclear balance. My colleagues and I were honored to listen to lectures by distinguished guest professors that have first-hand experiencing in dealing with this topic, including those who represented the Russian Federation at top-level nuclear negotiations. The two-month course that we took was intense, but the knowledge and memories that we gained were well worth it”, – course leader, M.A. student Andrew Korybko.
