Verification is a key and indispensable element of nuclear arms control and nuclear disarmament. Any substantive discussion on the future of strategic stability, nuclear arms race limitation, and the prospects for nuclear disarmament becomes pointless if it fails to address verification. To answer the question of what verification should look like in the future, leading Russian and foreign experts analyze the experience of the implementation of bilateral agreements between the Soviet Union/Russia and the United Sates and look at various international mechanisms. For the first time, Russian experts offer a comprehensive assessment of the approaches proposed by the International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification (IPNDV) and other new initiatives in this field.

"Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) poses a real threat to public safety and well-being. Europe has become the epicenter of the outbreak. The situation in Europe is getting worse by every hour. Although the situation in Russia is yet relatively safe, the fact that the pandemic is raging along the perimeter of Russia’s borders cannot be ignored. Risks for Russia are increasing",  Director of PIR Center Dr. Vladimir A. Orlov.

From the moment of its foundation, one of the PIR Center's priorities has been the publication of academic periodicals and monographs devoted to the issues of international security and the nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction.  To a great extent, the recognition of the PIR Center in the academic world, business community, and political circles is due to the demand for the organization's main publication, the Security Index journal in its Russian and International editions (before 2007 - Yaderny Kontrol).

High-ranking Russian and foreign politicians not merely read the journal but also express on its pages their views on international security issues. The journal authors include Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva and the Secretary-General of the Conference on Disarmament, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, Executive Secretary of the CTBTO, Ambassador Tibor Tóth, Secretary General of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen and many others.

Since 2000, the PIR Center has been publishing monographs of the PIR Center Library series. Those include the two-volume textbook for Russian higher education institutions Nuclear Nonproliferation the guideboook Global Partnership Against The Spread Of Weapons Of Mass Destruction, the report Russians on the Threat of WMD Proliferation and Terrorism, and others.

During the years PIR Center has also extensivly published on the diversity of global security, nonproliferation and arms control problems. In particular, these include PIR Study Papers: Russia and Global Security (since 1996), the series of PIR Center Reports (1997-2000), the journals Missile and Outer Space, Chemical weapons and problems of its destruction, Export of conventional arms. The latter became the basis for the journal Eksport Vooruzheniy edited by the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies.
