«The circumstances in which the whole world has found itself today have changed, but the importance of nuclear nonproliferation issues and U.S.-Russia dialogue on the NPT review process continues to bring together both young and major experts. I am very glad that modern technologies help us in this. Could anyone predict a year ago, at the last meeting of the working group, that the Review Conference would be rescheduled? Hardly. But this gives us time, and by “us” I mean Russia, the USA and the whole nonproliferation community, time to think creatively about how we can better prepare for it. And our Track 2.5 meetings are devoted to exactly such ideas, fresh and bright, from the next generation of experts», – Director of PIR Center, Head of the Center for Global Trends and International Organizations at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Federation, Professor at MGIMO University, Co-Chair of the working group Dr. 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.
