The International and Comparative Law Research Center presents its Annual Report for the year 2021, which marked a new milestone in establishing the Center as a leading international and comparative law think tank.
While continuing to pursue previously determined strategic lines, such as trade and investment, digitalization, the Arctic, general issues of international law, consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, we increasingly delved into the sustainable development and energy transition agenda.
Over the year, we have expanded international cooperation, strengthened our internal expertise, and, as an independent analitycal center, received the opportunity to represent our views in various working groups under federal authorities, as well as in international organizations — for example, the ICLRC became the first in Russia to be given the status of UNEP FI Supporting Institution.
In 2021, we joined a government project to adapt the Russian economy to the global energy transition in terms of developing the regulatory framework to implement the Strategy of Socio-Economic Development of Russia With a Low Level of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Until 2050.
We appreciate the opportunity to participate in the discussion of the topical issues and to communicate our expert message to decision-makers.
