The 1973 Energy Crisis: The Oil Embargo and the New Age of Energy

Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) and the Institute of Global Politics at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Arab Oil Embargo.

SIPA Dean Keren Yahri-Milo will provide welcome remarks, followed by a keynote address by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Dr. Daniel Yergin that will examine the historical significance of the Embargo.

They will then move to a panel discussion focusing on the details of the Arab Oil Embargo—what happened, and how did it shake up geopolitics and the global economy? The panel will then examine the lasting effects—how it has guided policymakers in the decades since, and what lessons does it hold for the current precarious geopolitical situation? This event will provide an excellent opportunity to re-examine a pivotal moment in energy history, and one that continues to shape policymaking, in manners both subtle and obvious.
