New Analytical Center to Serve Government Interests
New Analytical Center to Serve Government Interests
The Institute Of International Studies (IIS) at
A closer bond between science, education and practice is essential for the making of modern society. All the major universities in the world are also big research centers. The leading nations on the planet foster a fusion between academic and expert knowledge, theoretical training and developing practical skills. This is in line with the traditions and the main strategic development of
The IIS is called upon to tackle important problems relating to forward planning of Russia’s foreign policy, to find ways for closer integration between the strategic vision and implementation of tactical and functional
The IIS is trying to meet these objectives through regular conferences, workshops,
One important distinguishing characteristic of the Institute of International Studies is that this is a leading analytical agency working for the government. In addition to Russia’s MFA, which is naturally a customer of IIS, its analytical products are of interest to virtually all government agencies dealing with the shaping of Russia’s foreign policy, including the Presidential Executive Office, working for which is both a great responsibility and honor.
The unique role of IIS is that this institute deals with more than a narrow special subject; it deals with all pivotal matters of international relations. At the moment, IIS brings together 11 research centers, each of which is a recognized center of expert knowledge in a particular field. The most familiar of them are as follows: the Center of Global Problems, the Center of
In long term, IIS will set up a number of unique centers for the study of international problems that are likely to gain the defining nature, including in the context of Russia’s national interests. I have in mind research into strategic stability and security, new challenges and threats, the UN and peacemaking, world economic processes, problems of BRIC [Brazil, Russia, India and China], international environmental and climatic problems, questions of falsification of history, computerization and information security, etc.
IIS is going to be one of the leading intellectual hubs to put forward and develop innovative scientific and practical ideas pertaining to international relations and Russia’s foreign policy. In today’s world, the
It is of exceptional importance for pioneering scientific ideas to be rooted in practical experience. One of the major but still insufficiently tapped resources of our foreign policy consists in pooling the efforts of theoreticians and practitioners to achieve specific goals, especially if all of them work for Russia’s MFA.
The unique role of IIS is that this institute deals with more than a narrow special subject; it deals with all pivotal matters of international relations.
One of the forms of such cooperation, one can imagine, would be the setting up of temporary ad hoc working groups (of 10 to 12 persons) comprised of practical workers (including workers from other departments and ministries) and scientists for compiling analytic and prognostic documents on the most pressing issues of world politics of short-,
We could also dream about an even more ambitious plan — to create a powerful analytical center based on the Department for Foreign Policy Planning (DFPP) and the IIS, an analogue (under modern conditions) of the legendary Administration for Planning Foreign Policy Measures (UPVM, after its Russian abbreviation) responsible in the Soviet Foreign Ministry for liaison with the ministry’s divisions and generation of foreign policy initiatives.
The pooling of academic and practical efforts is characteristic of the leading countries in the world. This is the substance of modern development tendencies aiming at creating conditions for a mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and personnel to serve as best as possible the government interests as best as possible. This practice, as far as Russia is concerned, is more an exception than the rule. Our diplomatic service in this sense is more conservative, inert and divided into castes unlike its Western counterparts which have always been drawing on science and even business. The need for the latter, however, is an objective need prompted by the very logic of evolution of modern society.
Further development of
Working towards these objectives will help
The goals set by IIS may seem too ambitious, but experience shows that failing to set major goals, one is likely to spin the wheels for a long time without knowing it.
