Energy, Environment and Security in Asia

Date : Thu., April 05, 2012 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Category : Asia Conference

The quest for energy security and the environmental impact of energy development and use have become vital concerns with major implications for foreign policy in Asia and the U.S.’s relations with the region. What does the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster mean for Japan and its international role? How does China’s quest for energy resources abroad affect target states and their relations with China and others? Is U.S.-China cooperation on clean energy possible and what does it portend for bilateral relations? How do issues of climate change, energy policy and regional security interact in South Asia and shape relations among India, Pakistan, China and the U.S.? What are the likely consequences of Asian states’ ranging further afield—even to an increasingly exploitable Arctic—in pursuit of energy resources? This full-day conference brings together leading scholars in the field to address these questions.
