This panel discussion is an introduction to some of the issues examined in the University of Westminster’s new interdisciplinary MA programme, Energy and Environmental Change.


Since the 2000s, the global energy landscape that took shape in the last two decades of the twentieth century has been altered due to major geopolitical and geoeconomical shifts, growing climate change concerns, the rise of new players in the energy sector and technological breakthroughs. This panel discussion seeks to provide new perspectives on world energy prospects and challenges.

The panelists include Professor Paul Stevens, distinguished fellow at Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, in London, Dr Robert Falkner, Associate Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science and Dr Tom Wales, Group Political Adviser at BP’s Government and Political Affairs section.

The event will be chaired by Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Roland Dannreuther.

The presentations will be followed by a discussion with the audience.

There will be the opportunity for networking at a wine reception.

The event is free of charge but please register to secure your place and to avoid disappointment by emailing Dr Wojceich Ostrowski.
