Energy Security, Human Rights and Transatlantic Relations

Edited by Esther Brimmer

This volume details ideas presented at a 2008 conference on the impact of energy security issues on international political affairs. In particular, the book focuses on the human rights policies of countries in the transatlantic region. The authors discuss how European and American leaders have addressed their most important energy security vulnerabilities and what effects their responses have had on their foreign policies. The book considers whether changing the mix of energy sources and concomitant vulnerabilities might liberate international human rights advocacy and other international affairs issues.
