About the Speech:
 
Changes in the global energy supply can have profound implications for international relations. In the fourth lecture of the 2014 ESB series, Meghan O’Sullivan will consider recent developments in energy and their global consequences. In particular, she will reflect on the limits and nuances of translating new-found U.S. energy riches into global influence. In light of the Russia-Ukraine crisis, Dr. O’Sullivan will also analyse the implications of the shifting energy lanscape for Europe in terms of security of supply.
