UACES Arena - The Politics of Fracking in Europe: Shale Gas and Risk Regulation in Europe and the Role of the EU

Brussels, Belgium

4 December 2012

Speaker: Francis McGowan, University of Sussex

This event is part of the UACES Arena, which is organised by UACES and Edelman|The Centre in cooperation with the University of Kent at Brussels. UACES Arena invites leading scholars to challenge conventional wisdom in the policy-making world and to present new ideas for a changing Europe.

With shale gas having already significantly affected US gas markets, this event aims to consider the potential impact this resource may have on the future gas markets of Europe. Proponents highlight its potential to diversify supply, enhance energy security and reduce market price, in addition to assisting with reducing CO2 emissions, increasing the competitiveness of EU industry and aiding job creation. Critics, however, raise questions about its environmental impact and urge more caution. What does this mean for EU policy?

Please note that this event is free to attend.

To register, please send an email with 'Shale Gas' in the subject field and stating clearly your name and organisation to meet@thecentre.eu

The seminars are hosted by Edelman The Centre at 22, Avenue Marnix, 1000 Brussels from 12:30 to 14:00 (with a sandwich lunch provided from 12:00 to 12:30).

This seminar was funded with the support of the Lifelong Learning programme of the European Union.
