"Russia’s vision of arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation issues remains in fact very conventional. It is pragmatic and realistic. We do not feel “constrained by traditional formats and diplomatic protocol”. On the contrary, we strongly believe that in many cases using proven formats and keeping to well-established diplomatic routine is the best way to address and resolve outstanding international issues of today and tomorrow. From our point of view, this “traditionalist” – or maybe “no-nonsense” – approach might be helpful for preventing turning serious and solution-oriented professional discussions aimed at achieving substantive results into road-shows with uncertain purpose, random participation and no clear mandate", – Sergey RyabkovDeputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation. 

International Summer School on Global Security 2008

2008_1.jpgFrom June, 29  to  July, 12, 2008 the Eighth International Summer School on Global Security was held . The main goal of the program was to expand the understanding of young experts on contemporary challenges and threats to international security and ways to find solutions.

During the first week the issues of regional security were discussed (Europe, Central Asia, the Black Sea and the Caspian region, the Middle East), as well as energy, environment, water, information, demographic and migration security issues, international crime, drug trafficking and other up-to-date challenges to global security.

2008_2.jpgThe second week of the course included lectures and seminars devoted to a detailed study of nonproliferation issues and arms control. Special attention was focused on the issues related to the international nonproliferation regime and possible scenarios of it's improvement; regional challenges to the nonproliferation regime (North Korea, Iran) and the role of international institutions in settling nonproliferation issues.

2008_3.jpgMore than 160 applications from 47 cities in 12 countries of the CIS were sent to PIR Center in 2008. As a result 26 young experts were approved - representatives of the ministries of foreign affairs and defense, the staff of research organizations, and graduate students of universities and academic institutions.
