Description

Independent Task Force reports are consensus documents that offer analysis and policy prescriptions for major U.S. foreign policy issues facing the United States, developed through private and nonpartisan deliberations among a group of high-level experts.

The CFR-sponsored Independent Task Force report on Turkey asserts that Turkey is an increasingly influential regional and economic power and calls for the United States and Turkey to forge a new partnership. The report provides analysis and recommendations to policymakers and others on the U.S.-Turkish relationship; Turkey's role within NATO; its relations in the Middle East, Europe, and elsewhere; its place in the global economy; and its political and social development; among other important issues.

The Future of Energy

Experts discuss the relationship of energy with geopolitics, modernity, and the environment, as well as sources of clean and renewable energy.

With renewable energy sources in countries like Brazil and Bolivia, will U.S. energy policy shift toward South America?

The global energy map is being redrawn at an accelerated pace. All signs point to the United States becoming part of an increasingly hemispheric energy trade, both for oil as well as for biofuels like ethanol. The Middle East will still loom large in U.S. energy policy given its crucial role in the world oil market, but U.S. energy officials and companies are forging deeper ties with their counterparts elsewhere in the Americas.
