Fulbright-Schuman scholar gives talk at Harvard University on EU-US energy relations

bocseAlexandra-Maria Bocşe, Fellow on Transatlantic Relations at Harvard University and Fulbright-Schuman Grantee, gave on 6 May 2016 a talk at the Belfer Library, Harvard Kennedy School on ‘The U.S. and European energy security: recent developments’. She argued that the 2014 Ukrainian crisis generated a renewed U.S. interest in European security in general and European energy security in particular. The talk discussed the impact that U.S. shale gas exports, as well as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, might have on the energy security of the EU. It concluded that, although great progress in transatlantic cooperation on energy was achieved so far, additional work needs to be undertaken to implement high level political commitments taken in 2014 by officials on both sides of the Atlantic. The talk was very well received by the public. Alexandra is currently conducting research at Harvard on energy governance and EU-U.S. interactions in the field of energy.
