“In this transitional period, further strengthening of the dialogue with external partners, in particular BRICS-Plus, is of paramount importance. The absence of the states of the Middle East and Southeast Asia in the “club” at present limits the potential for the formation of a BRICS partner network. Whereas the “club” has a generally strong membership, so far, none of the states of the Islamic world participates in BRICS. This creates a certain imbalance, even though the Muslim population makes up a significant share in two of the five BRICS countries (India and Russia)”, ‒ PIR Center's report on the prospects of BRICS enlargement from the point of view of international security and Russia's interests.

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.
