On February 13, 2019, in Moscow, RIAC and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace held a Russia-U.S. seminar on the issues of bilateral relations and international security. The seminar was held in the framework of RIAC and Carnegie Endowment bilateral project ”Stabilizing Bilateral Relations and International Security Issues” aimed at finding practical ways to stabilize bilateral relations.

The seminar participants noted that at present, Russia-U.S. relations have been at the lowest point of their development since the end of the Cold War, and this state of affairs leads to destructive consequences for the international security system.

The discussions at the seminar focused on three main topics dealing with international security:

1. Preventing unintentional military escalation and incidents;

2. Framework for arms control;

3. Strategic stability issues.

The bilateral seminar was held within Track 2 with the participation of leading experts and former officials from Russia and the USA. American participants included leaders and staff of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, representatives of foundations and NGOs working in the area of international relations and security (The Nuclear Threat Initiative; Global Alliance Advisors; Center for a New American Security; Kissinger Associates, Inc.).

Russian participants represented academic institutions (RAS Institute for U.S. and Canadian Studies; IMEMO RAS; RAS Institute of Far Eastern Studies); universities and research centers (HSE, Center for Comparative European and International Studies); mass media (Nezavisimaya Gazeta; Russia in Global Politics, Republic.Ru); NGOs (Carnegie Moscow Center; PIR Center). The meeting was attended by Ambassadors Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russia, RIAC members.

A number of recommendations were made during the discussions on stabilization of bilateral relations and strengthening international security. RIAC and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace will continue their work in this regard.
