On Tuesday, May 24, Tokyo hosted the summit of the leaders of QUAD, an informal alliance of the United States, India, Japan and Australia aimed at containing the People’s Republic of China in the Indo-Pacific region. The summit mainly focused on discussing various anti-Chinese initiatives and the Ukrainian crisis. The summit, in addition to the first persons of the QUAD states, was attended by many other statesmen. Among them was former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who left his post due to health reasons in September 2020. This February, amid the Ukrainian crisis and growing tensions between Taiwan and mainland China, Abe suggested that Tokyo consider the idea of hosting on the Japanese territory nuclear weapons.

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.
