“When students, aspiring to become diplomats, ask me whom they should regard as a role model, I say “Sergei Ryabkov”. You demonstrate such a unique combination of perseverance when it comes to defending national interests, openness to a dialogue, gentleness, intelligence, flair erudition, considerable professional expertise and an innate curiosity, inherent in young spirits, coupled with an endearing charm. Happy anniversary!” – Vladimir Orlov, PIR Center Director and MGIMO Professor.

The present occasional paper seeks to provide a comprehensive analysis of the key provisions of the Basic Principles of State Policy of the Russian Federation on Nuclear Deterrence and put them into perspective, while also drawing on the 2014 Military Doctrine. The “Basic Principles” is considered as a development of major importance since it is the first time in Russian history that such a detailed nuclear policy planning document is released publicly, and the room for misinterpretation of Russian nuclear policy is narrowed.

U.S.-Russia Dialogue on the NPT Review Process: Ideas from Next Generation

Third Meeting of the Track 2.5 Working Group 

Zoom video conference

 

On May 15, 2020, PIR Center and the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey will conduct a virtual seminar on the topic "U.S.-Russia Dialogue on the NPT Review Process: Ideas from Next Generation".

Senior nonproliferation experts, including former officials from the United States and Russia, tend to compare the current crisis in this field to the Cold War era, often in favor of the latter. As we approach the upcoming NPT Review Conference, it is especially valuable to examine the history of U.S.-Russian engagement on NPT issues over the last 50 years through a scholarly lens. We ask the younger generation to share the lessons they learned from studying this experience.

Working languages of the seminar is English.
