Maintaining Energy Security in a Global Context
A Report to the Trilateral Commission: 48

The authors of this volume rely on their extensive expertise in energy security to tackle the critical issues that affect and shape policy in a global context. Seeking to explore the roots, development, and many faces of energy security, the authors discuss a potential disruption in the balance of energy security due to the rising dependence on imported oil from the unstable Middle East, supply versus demand and its affect on price, and the environmental challenge.

The various chapters, generously documented with charts, pinpoint relevant concerns and concepts essential to the understanding of energy security. The authors suggest that the "reemergence of such substantial dependence on Persian Gulf exporters is a serious, ongoing concern with important policy implications for trilateral countries." Their in-depth categorical examination of the various nation states and regions leads to the conclusion that "the trilateral countries...can seek to improve global energy security by participating in this economic growth in ways that serve energy security objectives."
