A Business and Policy Conference
The post-9/11 terrorist attacks in Madrid and London , threats to Europe's transportation and energy infrastructures, and growing environmental concerns have further altered our thinking about global security, generating new issues and challenges. This conference brings together experts on Europe and Eurasia from various fields to discuss key security issues and their political, economic, business, and policy impacts. Speakers will address trans-border security, EU/Russia energy and political relations, recent Eurasian geopolitical shifts and their impact on energy markets, as well as responses to global environmental change. The aim of this conference is to facilitate a constructive discussion of interest to the business, consular, and policy communities of Los Angeles.
