Never before has global energy security been so complex. China’s burgeoning economy is placing immense stress on energy markets. Meanwhile, with increasing environmental consciousness, states come under pressure to transition from conventional sources of energy to renewable sources. How will the recent shale gas discoveries affect energy politics, if at all? The International Relations Club, Lecture Fund and STIA Department proudly present a panel of experts to share their diverse perspectives on this issue. 

Joining us are Edward Chow, Senior Fellow in the Energy and National Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and China expert Joanna Lewis, Assistant Professor of STIA in the SFS. Theresa Sabonis-Helf, Professor of National Security Strategy at the National War College, will also be moderating the event. 
Anyone with an interest in energy issues or international affairs should come. Light refreshments will also be served at receptions before and after the event!
