Nister think tank was established in 2020, a year in which the COVID-19 pandemic almost stopped the Earth from spinning (and certainly stopped humans from flying), normalization agreements changed the rules of the game in the Middle East, President Donald Trump lost the U.S. elections, Belarus started an ongoing protest against its President, and much more. Quite an exciting year it was. 

In light of these significant changes in the macro-micro axis, that happened in such a dizzying way, we decided to establish Nister, which strives to promote fresh and applicable research in the field of International Relations, clarifying diplomatic initiatives for the general public, while helping academics, decision-makers and business people to fully understand the arenas in which they operate.

We are always happy to hear suggestions and recruit new members to Nister - Do not hesitate to contact us.
