Those who successfully graduated from our educational programs belong to our alumni community without any doubt. Moreover, we also count as our alumni people who used to work at the PIR Center regardless their age, social position and affiliation,” – PIR  Center Executive Director Albert Zulkharneev.

“India has recently blocked the WTO agreement on trade facilitation. The position of New Delhi is primarily shaped by the issue of subsidies for food production. India has adopted a so-called Right to Food act. In accordance with the law, the government must provide the Indian poor with a minimum amount of food. The norms of the WTO suggest that India should abandon the food subsidies. However, the country cannot do this not only for economic but also for political reasons. Abolishing this law in the near future would be a political suicide for any government”, – Vice President, Observer Research Foundation Nandan Unnikrishnan.

“The updated version of the CyberPulse is a topical and a valuable electronic edition focused equally on the professionals and general audience. Such e-journal appears to be in a high demand for the public authorities that are in charge of the issues related to information security and internet governance. I wish the PIR Center’s team success in further development of this project!” – the Head of the Strategic Solutions Department at the Russian Association of Electronic Communications (RAEC) Irina Levova.
