“The latest prepcom has two main opposite results: in two weeks it was not possible to reach consensus among the NPT members and agree on the text of recommendations for the 2020 Review Conference, but it was decided to appoint Argentinean diplomat Rafael Mariano Grossi as the Chair of the Review Conference – his formal appointment will take place at the end of 2019," Adlan Margoev, PIR Center “Russia and Nuclear Nonproliferation” Program Director.

On May 2, more than 40 friends and partners of the PIR Center gathered at the Permanent Mission of Russia to the UN. Among them were heads and high representatives of delegations participating in the third session of the Preparatory Committee of the NPT Review Conference, the world's largest experts in the field of non-proliferation, graduates of PIR Center programs working in New York, young scientists and master students of double degree in the field of non-proliferation.

"Can it really be true that PIR Center is a quarter of a century old today? It would be a great occasion for a grand celebration, wouldn’t it. But I still cannot quite believe it.

When me and a tiny team of my associates were establishing PIR Center in the spring of 1994, working in a small room on the corner of Tverskaya Ulitsa and Strastny Boulevard overlooking the Pushkin statue in the very heart of Moscow, I could hardly imagine that this great institution would live long enough to see the new century and indeed the new millennium. If someone told me back at the time that it would mark its 25th anniversary in Moscow, Geneva and New York, or that greetings would be pouring in from all over the world to what is now a highly reputable international nongovernmental organization, I probably wouldn’t believe them. After all, how many fly-by-night NGOs have we all seen over the years – here today, gone tomorrow?," Vladimir Orlov, PIR Center Founder.

Landmark 100th issue of Security Index Journal

SECURITY INDEX 100th ISSUE

In the spring of 2012 PIR Center reached a major milestone, the 100th issue of the Security Index journal was published. We tried to make the event memorable for our Russian and international readers as well.

To mark the occasion, we held three scientific and practical seminars, in Moscow, Geneva and Vienna, to present the 100th issue to a select Russian and international audience. We have discussed topical issues of nuclear nonproliferation, disarmament and nuclear security. The 100th issue was also be presented to delegates of the Preparatory Committee of the 2012 NPT Review Conference and other key international forums.

We have decided that the 100th issue will largely focus on the road the Security Index – and its predecessor, the Yaderny Kontrol – have travelled over the past nearly 20 years in studying issues of nonproliferation, nuclear arms control and nuclear security. Going back to our traditional roots in the 100th issue, we also look into the future, discussing key issues of the nuclear nonproliferation agenda for the 21st century.
