“Joe Biden has already begun forming a “shadow National Security Council”, which includes several dozen working groups. According to media reports, the leading roles in this structure are played by Biden's most trusted advisers: former Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who is tipped for the position of Secretary of State or National Security Advisor; Jake Sullivan, ex- Director of Policy Planning in the State Department; Avril Haynes, ex-Deputy Director of the CIA; Michele Flournoy, former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy. Staffing base of the "shadow NSС" is the analytical centers of the democratic administration, the most prominent among which are the Center for New American Security and the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, founded by Biden himself" – this is the leitmotiv of the 525th issue of Yaderny Kontrol.

“It is important that PIR Center, along with other socially significant public organizations, will be able to take advantage of the support measures provided by the state. The inclusion in the register indicates that the organization is among the active community of NGOs and has a good reputation, which was confirmed during the implementation of specific projects. I’m sure that during this difficult time, support measures from the state will allow the PIR Center to more easily overcome the consequences of the pandemic faced by the Russian “third sector”, – Dmitry Polikanov, Advisor to the Head of the All-Russia People's Front Executive Committee, PIR Center Executive Board member.

International Summer School on Global Security 2008

2008_1.jpgFrom June, 29  to  July, 12, 2008 the Eighth International Summer School on Global Security was held . The main goal of the program was to expand the understanding of young experts on contemporary challenges and threats to international security and ways to find solutions.

During the first week the issues of regional security were discussed (Europe, Central Asia, the Black Sea and the Caspian region, the Middle East), as well as energy, environment, water, information, demographic and migration security issues, international crime, drug trafficking and other up-to-date challenges to global security.

Special attention was focused on the issues related to the international nonproliferation regime and possible scenarios of it's improvement; regional challenges to the nonproliferation regime (North Korea, Iran) and the role of international institutions in settling nonproliferation issues.

2008_3.jpgMore than 160 applications from 47 cities in 12 countries of the CIS were sent to PIR Center in 2008. As a result 26 young experts were approved - representatives of the ministries of foreign affairs and defense, the staff of research organizations, and graduate students of universities and academic institutions.
