The Center on Global Energy Policy and the Harriman Institute hosted a discussion with Prof. Yannis Maniatis, Greek Minister of Energy, Environment, and Climate Change, on the shifting energy dynamics in the Eastern Mediterranean and Europe.
Minister Maniatis discussed Greece's efforts to develop its domestic energy resources and its role in advancing domestic and regional energy security priorities. Specific questions to be addressed include: How can Greece contribute to the expansion of Europe's Southern Gas Corridor? What impacts will the recently-announced Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) have on Greece and the rest of Europe? And how can regional political dynamics hinder resource exploration and development? Alexander Cooley, Professor of Political Science, Barnard College, and Deputy Director for Social Sciences Programming at the Harriman Institute, moderated a discussion following the presentation.
