"The development of nuclear energy in Saudi Arabia is a forward-looking and important task. The State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom” has every chance to become one of the KSA’s key partners in the development of peaceful uses of nuclear energy because it already has extensive experience in working with nuclear newcomer countries in difficult climatic conditions with lack of the necessary infrastructure", ‒ Inna Rodina, PIR Center intern.

International security is not a center of the world, but a reflection of profound processes that nowadays are characterized by a growing randomness and shrinking planning horizon. Confidence, privacy and confidentiality of diplomacy are deteriorating. Ensuring security requires not only technical, but also political decisions. Under such circumstances the aim of the Russian foreign policy is to find a balance between development and security amidst an incoming new wave of globalization. To secure its status of a great power, Russia needs to preserve its relevance among other players and play a role of additional element to the situation of unsteady equilibrium.

International Summer School on Global Security 2005

SS2005-FirstPage-1.jpgFrom July 3 to 9 2005, PIR Center organized a Summer School on nonproliferation for young professionals from Russia and the CIS countries. The event was prepared in the framework of development of young professionals’ capacity in the field of nonproliferation and arms control.

Educational programs in the field of nonproliferation are one of the highest priorities in the PIR Center activities. The goal of these programs is to improve the skills of young professionals from public and private institutions who work in the field of nonproliferation and arms control, as well as researchers and graduate students, students of senior courses SS2005-FirstPage-2.jpgand journalists interested in the aforementioned issues.

The program is held annually since 2001. In 2005 the Summer School on nonproliferation for the first time took place outside of Moscow, in the hotel complex Pokrovskoye located in the Moscow region. The event was attended by some 25 participants representing the six republics of the former USSR, as well as four Russian closed administrative-territorial formations (CATF). Noteworthy fact is that PIR Center received more than 70 applications.
