“Internship at the PIR Center was very beneficial in many ways. On professional level, I was challenged every day and learned much about Russian policies, interests and perspectives on various security questions. This opportunity gave me a real taste of what working in an efficient think tank is. On a personal level, working for the PIR has pushed me outside my comfort zone into a completely unknown environment. But despite my limited skills in Russian, I had the feeling of being completely accepted and integrated in the team. All in all, my only regret will be the short term of my internship!”

“In the current highly politicized climate, the initiative for the International Convention on the Suppression of Acts of Chemical and Biological Terrorism may have a higher chance of succeeding if it transitions away from the usage of terrorist for non-state actor. Not only will it streamline the international legal framework by limiting the terminology to state and non-state actor, it will circumvent the necessity to provide a definition for terrorism”, –  Alicia Rorabaugh, PIR Center’s intern and student of the Dual Degree Master Program in Nonproliferation Studies

“There is a proposal to start research and development [on a missile prohibited under the INF Treaty]. It is not prohibited according to the Treaty, but it seems to be the first step of violation of the soul of the Treaty. […] For us, this is an indication that activities to create a new missile violating the Treaty are going on. The United States is engaged in preparatory work to withdraw from the Treaty. We consider this to be a mistake. We have offered the United States to sit together and discuss all issues of mutual concern, find solutions to these issues, and avoid making efforts provoking the other side to give an adequate answer,” — Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the United States of America.
