7: Energy and National Security

[Provide] cutting-edge, independent analysis.

Other Information:

To better inform public debate, CSIS developed the "Impacts of the Gulf Oil Spill Series," a speaker series examining the complex interconnection between exploration, risk, regulatory environment, and economic consequences. CSIS's Energy and National Security Program is uniquely positioned and respected within government, industry, and nonprofit circles for its cutting-edge, independent analysis. This was most evident with the April 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig and resulting oil spill, a tragic and polarizing event with effects that reached well beyond the Gulf. CSIS's energy team mobilized and played the role of honest broker between government, industry, and the public with thoughtful analysis on the spill and its longterm policy implications.
