The project Global Internet Governance and International Information Security examined the negotiation processes for the development of norms for the information space, international cooperation in issues related to Internet governance, as well as challenges to Russia's security and international security emanating from the information space.

PIR Center’s Project "Perspectives for Russia-ASEAN cooperation in strategic spheres" was aimed at developing practical recommendations for political and business communities of both Russia and ASEAN countries in strategic areas of their cooperation, including military-and-technical cooperation, space technologies, cyber security, and nuclear energy.

The concept of nuclear security was born out of understanding that nuclear facilities and installations due to their critical importance should be duly protected from theft or sabotage. At the beginning of the 21st century, cyberattacks against the critical infrastructure, including nuclear facilities, have shown the necessity of upgrading this concept taking into account developments in the information sphere. For this purpose, the "Cybersecurity of Critical Nuclear Infrastructure" project was created.

PIR  Center’s project "Security in Central Asia and Russia" defined the main vectors of rivalry and cooperation in the region. The objective of the project was to answer the question of the optimal strategy of behavior of Russia in Central Asia.

  Global Internet Governance and International Information Security ProgramPIR Center expanded and intensified its activities in the field of international information security and global internet governance using its pioneer research experience as a solid basis for this Project agenda.

The International Security Index (iSi) was a comprehensive index of the level of international security developed by the PIR Center through a project that had been ongoing for over a year. The iSi index was meant to demonstrate the extent to which the international security situation differs from the “ideal” (assumed as 4210 points according to our methodology) at each point in time. It also indicated how various specific military and nonmilitary factors were effecting international security.

Sustainable Partnership with Russia Group (SuPR) was created to support continuing and long-lasting success in the efforts by the Russian Federation and the United States to work as partners on two of the most important issues on the global security agenda: nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear disarmament. All members of the SuPR Group were leading experts on U.S.-Russian relations, nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament.


 

Ways towards Nuclear Disarmament - The project has been implemented since October 2008.  Within its framework PIR Center elaborates set of practical steps for the preparation of new international negations aimed at deep reduction of nuclear arsenals; develops recommendations on the issue of possible significant reduction of all types of nuclear weapons; analyses possibilities of cooperation between the Russian Federation and the USA in the field of missile defense.

Development of Russia’s Nuclear Exports - Nuclear technologies, including assistance in designing and building nuclear reactors are one of the key Russian high-tech exports. Russian nuclear exports comply with all the requirements regarding the security of nuclear materials and nuclear nonproliferation.


The Future of the Global Partnership Program and Russia-US Cooperation in Nuclear Security - The project is focused on prospects for further Russia-U.S. bilateral and multilateral cooperation on nuclear security and stability of existing international cooperation mechanisms for nuclear security.

 

Reform of the Russian Armed Forces: Assessing the Developments - One of the project’s priorities is drawing up projections of  how the reform’s progress will affect the future of the Russian Armed Forces, especially their nuclear - missile component.

 

Conventional Arms and Prospects of Arms Trade Treaty - Purpose of the Project for Conventional Arms and Prospects of Arms Trade Treaty is research of the Russian defense industry and arms export; development of the international legislation for control of conventional arms with an emphasis on discussion and adoption of Arms Trade Treaty.
