Influenced by variables of geography and economics, nothing is more associated with the world of geopolitics than oil. The 1973 Yom Kippur War saw the first use of oil as a weapon in the Middle East. Since then, our views on the applications and implications of energy have changed. Today, energy is more than oil, geopolitics is more than the power of OPEC, and security is more than just the security of supply. Join us to learn about the economic and political impacts of energy and its significance in the 21st century.
