25 March 2019

Council of Europe (Room 8)
528 avenue de l’Europe 67 000 Strasbourg
Energy Security has been recently at the centre of much policy debates in Western countries and of different international crisis in Europe. Since the Arab Oil Embargo of 1973 energy has been a weapon used by some countries in order to prove their existence at the international level.
Within the context of modern “risk societies” (U. Beck), the contemporary energy landscape is more and more complex and energy security is much broader and a more dynamic concept than in the 1970s. The European Union, Japan and the United States of America must address a multitude of challenges that need global responses: climate change, renewable energy, rising peak demand, new geopolitical rivalries.
How can we a secure energy framework at the global level? How can energy policy be more responsive to the environmental and socio-economic demands of our world?
