"Strategic stability, according to a basic understanding, means the relationship between Russia and the United States, when both sides have no incentives to launch a first nuclear strike. It was defined during the Cold War. Development of new arms technologies, including highprecision non-nuclear, hypersonic weapons and space-based missile defense systems, makes an impact on strategic stability. A significant shift in balance of power between Russia and the United States can undermine stability, increasing the risk of nuclear conflict," - Consultant to PIR Center and Researcher of the Center for Global Trends and International Organizations of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry Andrey Baklitskiy.

“Although I try to remain optimistic about the possibility of Russian-American dialogue in preparation for and during the NPT 2020 Review Conference ...

In such difficult times, it is especially important to generate constructive and positive ideas, and I look forward to welcome them from the young generation of experts”, – PIR Center Director Vladimir Orlov.

The War of Rhetoric over the Internet Governance

The article is a translation from French into English of the article La guerre rhétorique de la gouvernance Internet which was published in the Le Monde blog by Dominique Lacroix, Invited blogger at Le Monde, on September 19, 2014. 

The publication highlights the major international debates in the field of internet governance that took place in 2014. Particularly, those include NETmundial summit on the future of internet governance conducted in Sao Paolo, Brazil on April 23-24, 2014, and the 9th Internet Governance Forum summit held on September 2-5, 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey. 

The author focuses on the conceptual clash between the multistakeholder approach to the internet governance, and the support of the principle of State sovereignty in the internet, promoted by Russia and some other major actors.
