ECIPE Seminar: The political and economic power of Russian energy in Europe: Who is really on top?

November 13 2014
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, Brussels
Speakers: Matthew Bryza, Fredrik Erixon
Time: 10:00

Europe is dependent on Russian gas for its energy supply. Yet is Europe really so dependent that its energy import should influence its general policy vis-à-vis Russia? While the popular image suggests the Kremlin to get its way in Europe by wielding its energy weapon – e.g. threats of gas cuts – the reality is that Europe has an increasing capacity to substitute Russian gas. Russia, too, has an economic interest to avoid a disruption that could put the country’s heavy energy investments in Europe at risk.

Please join us for a seminar about the politics and economics of Europe’s energy import from Russia.

The event will feature presentations by Matthew Bryza, former U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan and Director of the International Centre for Defence Studies in Tallinn, and Fredrik Erixon, Director at ECIPE.
