Russian-language newsletter discussing research, conferences and activities in the NIS, and opportunities for joint research.
To facilitate communication among its core
members and their associated NGOs, ENP's Almaty
office initiated an informational newsletter, Vestnik,
in June 1999. The newsletter provides a forum for discussion of
current research, planned conferences and activities in the region, and
opportunities for joint research. Vestnik is distributed in Russian via e-mail.
For more information, please contact Vestnik Editor Margarita Sevcik (email@example.com).
Vestnik: We no longer produce a Russian version of this newsletter.

- View/Hide Full Description
Irina Koupriyanova, relying on her many years of experience in teaching security culture, defines the security culture and its components, which she compares to a complex and multi-leveled mosaic. The author also focuses on the role of the human factor in the security of nuclear sites. A portion of her article identifies and analyzes the problems associated with teaching a security culture. She proposes a model of integrating the topic in content courses and describes various approaches to such integration. In the conclusion, the author discusses the need to approach training of nuclear site personnel in a more conceptual fashion by looking at components that have previously been outside the scope of the attention of the designers of training courses.
- "Critical Issues Forum in Russia" by Lyubov Schekaleva
This article is devoted to nonproliferation education at the high-school level in the Russian closed cities within the framework of the CNS Critical Issues Forum program.
- View/Hide Full Description
Lyubov Schekaleva begins her article by referring to the UN Study on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation Education (2002), which emphasizes the need to expand and improve upon disarmament and nonproliferation education and training. She argues that such education should be included in school curricula to promote critical thinking and understanding of nonproliferation and arms control issues among the younger generation. The author describes one such program, the Critical Issues Forum, which is conducted by CNS jointly with her Center and involves teachers and high-school students from United States and Russian closed cities. After reviewing the goals and objectives of this program, she provides specific examples of how CIF is implemented in Russian schools. The author concludes by explaining the importance of such program for students from Russian closed cities and the overall intercultural exchange between Russian and American teachers and youth.
