Energy Security Project

The Institute for Security and Conflict Studies pursues research in traditional and emerging areas of international security policy.

Energy and International Conflict

The ISCS Energy Security Project supports research that examines the links between energy and international conflict from a traditional security studies perspective. Our collaborative book project, Crude Calculus: Reexamining the Energy Security Logic of America's Military Presence in the Persian Gulf, brings together energy experts at GW and other leading institutions to explore the key rationales underpinning U.S. force posture in the Gulf and consider strategic alternatives. Faculty members currently researching this topic include Charles Glaser, Rose Kelanic, Llewelyn Hughes, Marcus King, Caitlin Talmadge, and Rob Weiner.
