University of Westminster, London

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 geo-political and geo-economical 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 panellists 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 the University of Westminster's Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Roland Dannreuther, and has been organised by the University’s Department of Politics and International Relations, which is home to the new interdisciplinary MA programme Energy and Environmental Change.  

The event is free but registration is essential. Register via Eventbrite.
