Dramatic changes in the global energy system pose hard choices for U.S. interests and values. This panel will seek to address some of the following questions:

  • What are the leadership responsibilities of the United States in the changing energy market?
  • How extensively can the United States involve itself in policy initiatives to promote market stability? Should the United States involve itself?
  • What are the best strategies and tactics the United States can use to promote energy security in a low price environment?
  • What are the ethical challenges of U.S. actionor inaction?

This event is the second in our "American Leadership" series, a nonpartisan education program in New York that will examine a range of topics and facilitate a two-way exchange of ideas between New Yorkers interested in foreign policy and national security issues and the Washington-based Center for a New American Security (CNAS) network of policymakers and scholars.
