The Energy Security and Climate Change program aims to illuminate and clarify the relationships between energy, economics, international security, and global climate change, with an eye toward insights that can inform pressing policy decisions. Energy has long been intimately connected with the global economy and international relations. But with rapid changes in the energy landscape, the international economy, world affairs, and scientific understanding of climate change, scholars' and policymakers' understandings of how energy influences the world are increasingly out of date. Through a mix of research, commissioned papers, and meetings, the Energy Security and Climate Change program works to explore and disseminate ideas that bridge the energy production, foreign policy, and climate change communities and to enhance dialogue between these closely linked worlds.
