Sustainable Human Security


Many of the 21st century’s most dangerous threats are of a new, cross-boundary nature and can inflict previously unthinkable levels of  destruction and disruption. Such threats include intensified natural disasters, resource crises over energy, food, and water, dysfunctional or failing states, pandemics, and the massive forced migrations of people around the world.

We are making use of our experience and networks to forge global cooperation around such threats and prevent them from spawning new  conflicts.

Our work on energy security is one example of our efforts to expand beyond traditional security paradigms, often defined by the Cold War,  and help usher in a new era of cooperation where we recognize common threats and act collectively to resolve them.

On February 12th, the EastWest Institute and the MGIMO University held an expert meeting on the progressive change in the international energy system.

The meeting included some of Russia's leading academics and energy security experts, as well as foreign diplomats based in Moscow who offered a very future-oriented perspective on likely global energy trends and shared their global outlooks with respect to the energy security situation over the next 10-15 years.
