EURASIAN ENERGY SECURITY DILEMMAS: RUSSIA'S ENERGY STATECRAFT AND THE CONTOURS OF THE GREAT GAME REDUX
International Security Speaker Series
Adam N. Stulberg, Co-director, Center for International Strategy, Technology and Policy
The Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law invites you to Eurasian Energy Security Dilemmas: Russia’s Energy Statecraft and the Contours of the Great Game Redux with Adam N. Stulberg, Co-director, Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy, Georgia Institute of Technology on Monday, April 19, 2010, at 5:00 pm in Sid Richardson Hall, Room 3.124.
The Russia-Georgia conflict ignited debate over the strategic posture of a “re-energized” Russia: will it integrate with the world or venture down the path of a self-isolated bully? Russia faces tricky decisions, because its energy infrastructure and domestic regulatory environment blur the boundary between strategic and commercial energy strategies. Viewing the renewed contest over Caspian hydrocarbon supply through the prism of “energy security dilemmas” can help us understand the implications of Russia’s global energy resurgence both for Russia's future foreign policy and also for other countries' energy security.
Dr. Stulberg is Associate Professor and Co-director, Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on international security, Eurasian politics and security affairs, nuclear nonproliferation, and energy and international security. His current research focuses on energy security dilemmas and statecraft in Eurasia, new approaches to strategic stability, internationalization of the nuclear fuel cycle, counter-network warfare, and the implications nanotechnology for international security.
Dr. Stulberg earned his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He has worked closely with Senator Sam Nunn drafting policy recommendations and background studies on future directions for the U.S. Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, building regional and energy security regimes in Central Asia and the South Caucasus, and engaging Russia’s regional power centers.
This presentation is part of the Strauss Center’s International Security Speaker Series, which features leading scholars and policy practitioners discussing challenges and solutions for meeting the security demands of the modern world.
