THESEUS Summer School 2007

Energy Policy and Climate Change – Global Challenges, European Answers

Brussels 01/07 - 07/07/2007


The aim of the THESEUS Summer School 2007 is to shed light on the complexity of the problems underlying the debate on energy policy and climate change. Both topics raise questions ranging from economics and geopolitics to environmental policy: What are the economics of energy markets? What are the main challenges for the security of Europe’s energy supply? And how can politics cope with the consequences of climate change?

Applying both an analytical and a normative approach, the THESEUS Summer School 2007 will feature speakers and high-level experts from international organisations, research, business, politics and NGOs - such as Prof. Dr. Peter Hennicke (President of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy), Prof. Dr. Claude Henry (Sciences Po Paris and Columbia University, New York) or Jo Leinen (European Parliament). The conclusions of the heads of state and government of the European Union at the Brussels spring summit in March and the G7/G8 summit will be a cornerstone of analysis and debate.
