“Today the nuclear nonproliferation regime faces a range of key challenges. These challenges fall under four main categories: ongoing difficulties with the implementation and universalization of the treaty, the disturbance of strategic stability, increasingly ineffective mechanisms of multilateral diplomacy, and a lack of progress towards establishing a WMD-free zone in the Middle East” — “Strengthening the Nuclear Nonproliferation Regime in 2016-2020”.
“If we just apply the treaty law, we may be tempted to think that if a cyber-attack is not an attack under the classical definition, then it is not restricted. We have to discuss to what extent cyber-attacks can be qualified as acts of violence in a legal sense” — Nils Melzer, Human Rights Chair at Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights.
PIR Center and the Diplomatic Academy of Russian Foreign Ministry will hold an international conference “Emerging Technologies and Global Security: an Agenda for the 21st Century”. The Conference will take place in Moscow on September 29, 2016.
