Cutting across policy areas, energy security decision-making has become a necessity in the twenty-first century. Having important consequences for climate and space policy, domestic and transatlantic debates over energy policy include inherent risks that have eluded international efforts. In Energy and Security Risks: A Transatlantic Comparison, the authors address these intertwined consequences in three policy areas. First, Paul Sullivan writes on challenges in securing energy supplies in our highly interconnected system. Then, Max M. Mutschler examines risks in space policy without international cooperation. Finally, Achim Maas analyzes the growth agenda on climate engineering.
Policy Report 55 is published within the greater framework of AICGS’ ongoing project, entitled “New Systemic Risks: Challenges and Opportunities for Transatlantic Cooperation,” in cooperation with the Stiftung Wissenshaft und Politik in Berlin.
