The project Global Internet Governance and International Information Security is part of the PIR Center Emerging Technologies and Global Security program. The project examines the negotiation processes for the development of norms for the information space, international cooperation in issues related to Internet governance, as well as challenges to Russia's security and international security emanating from the information space.

The Project includes research activities in the field of international information security and global Internet governance. PIR-Center believes that the analysis of these threats, in the context of the objective dualism of the global role of ICT, is an urgent task, necessary both for the purpose of forming responses within Russia and for determining priorities for international cooperation.

PIR Center started research in the field of international information security and Internet governance in the late 1990s, when these issues were just beginning to appear on the Russian security agenda. Today we use the scientific baggage of previous research as a full-fledged basis for further works. Among the problems that PIR Center experts currently explore are:

  • Global Internet governance
  • International information security: negotiation formats and norms, strategies and use of cyber tools
  • Big Data Regulation.

We actively cooperate with leading Russian experts from the Kaspersky Lab, Group-IB, Info-Watch, Cisco, and others in our trainings on new technologies and security in the field of ICT.

PIR Center closely cooperates with MGIMO, the Russian Foreign Ministry, the Russian Diplomatic Academy, Russian and foreign research centers and universities in these and a number of other areas.

The project Emerging Technologies and Global Security is part of the PIR Center eponymous program and aimed at exploring the potential for cooperation in the use and regulation of new technologies, as well as the transformation of challenges to Russia's military and non-military security. It is aimed at finding solutions that might minimize potential threats by means of a broad discussion and adoption of an international regulation via multilateral dialogue and mutually beneficial cooperation.

 

As part of this project, PIR Center experts are working on the following topics:

  • Artificial intelligence and international security
  • Multilateral cooperation in regulating the use of artificial intelligence technologies
  • Application of AI technologies in the international sphere as a tool for solving security problems in diplomacy and other areas of public administration as well as in international organizations
  • International regulation of Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems
  • International Humanitarian Law in the new technological realities.

PIR Center employees give lectures and an independent course on the topic "New Technologies and International Security" at MGIMO University.

PIR Center also engages Russian and foreign researchers from our Expert Council, graduates of our educational programs, and network associations with PIR Center participation in our projects.

PIR Center closely cooperates with MGIMO, the Russian Foreign Ministry, the Russian Diplomatic Academy, Russian and foreign research centers and universities in these and a number of other areas.

The concept of nuclear security was born out of understanding that nuclear facilities and installations due to their critical importance should be duly protected from theft or sabotage. At the beginning of the 21st century, cyberattacks against the critical infrastructure, including nuclear facilities, have shown the necessity of upgrading this concept taking into account developments in the information sphere.

Cybersecurity of nuclear facilities has been an important part of PIR Center’s research, producing the following studies:

"There has never been a greater need for education in the areas of disarmament and non-proliferation, especially with regard to weapons of mass destruction, but also in the field of small arms and international terrorism. Since the end of the cold war, changing concepts of security and threat have demanded new thinking. Such new thinking will arise from those who are educated and trained today," - Report of the UN Secretary General "United Nations study on disarmament andnon-proliferation education" (А/57/124), 30 August 2002
