“In the year of the PIR Center 25th anniversary, we note that this is the most experienced Russian non-governmental expert organization in the field of international security that remains a unique and valuable tool of Russian public diplomacy. The acronym “PIR” is known all over the world and there is no need to explain what stands for it. The demand for its expert assessments, applied research and educational programs is beyond doubt. We fully support and endorse the actions of the Founder & Director of PIR Center Vladimir Orlov aimed at optimizing the organization’s structure and elaborating systemic steps to develop the PIR Center and the entire PIR Community”, – statement by the PIR Center’s Executive Board.

“China shows no signs at all of being ready to join the process. Of course, that could change over time. In fact, it would also be in Russia’s best interests if not just China but also France and Britain were to join in, though neither country seems to have much to say on the matter for the time being. If we choose to pursue this scenario, we should be aware that any meaningful progress would take years to achieve. Meanwhile, we are facing some urgent tasks that cannot wait. And that is why Russia and the United States should continue to work as a duo, until such time when the duo can become a trio or, even better, a quintet.”, – Director of PIR Center Vladimir Orlov.

Landmark 100th issue of Security Index Journal

SECURITY INDEX 100th ISSUE

In the spring of 2012 PIR Center reached a major milestone, the 100th issue of the Security Index journal was published. We tried to make the event memorable for our Russian and international readers as well.

To mark the occasion, we held three scientific and practical seminars, in Moscow, Geneva and Vienna, to present the 100th issue to a select Russian and international audience. We have discussed topical issues of nuclear nonproliferation, disarmament and nuclear security. The 100th issue was also be presented to delegates of the Preparatory Committee of the 2012 NPT Review Conference and other key international forums.

We have decided that the 100th issue will largely focus on the road the Security Index – and its predecessor, the Yaderny Kontrol – have travelled over the past nearly 20 years in studying issues of nonproliferation, nuclear arms control and nuclear security. Going back to our traditional roots in the 100th issue, we also look into the future, discussing key issues of the nuclear nonproliferation agenda for the 21st century.
