Great Discussions Series: U.S. Foreign Policy and Petroleum, Thurs., May 11

Thurs., May 11, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Room 1010(m) Boardroom

*This is part of the Great Discussion series, which requires registration. See details below.

What is the effect of U.S. petroleum security on foreign policy? For 45 years, the country has alternated between periods of energy security and insecurity, sometimes able to wield petroleum as a useful instrument of foreign policy, sometimes not. Despite the so-called “energy revolution,” the U.S. today is by no means disentangled from foreign dependence and global trends. In order to be successful, policymakers must recognize both petroleum security circumstances and patterns in the relationship between petroleum and foreign policy.
