The UW Center for Global Studies hosted a two-day workshop focusing on energy security involving interdisciplinary faculty from UW, faculty from the Free University of Berlin, and participants from the non-profit and business sectors. This two day event included presentation of six papers (see agenda below) in three panel sessions addressing a variety of issues including traditional and new approaches to energy security, governance and management issues, and community development and agency. A final roundtable session focused on engaging industry, practitioners, and activists in emerging solutions. The workshop was funded by the School of Energy Resources, the Center for Global Studies, and through a European Union grant through the Colorado European Union Center for Excellence at CU-Boulder. This report proceeds in three parts: 1) rationale and agenda, 2) participant list with bios, 3) a discussion of outcomes to date of the workshop.
