On the heels of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s visit to the United States, Energy & Environment Program Associate Director Mihaela Carstei joins CTV to discuss the Keystone Pipeline project that would transport tar sands oil from Canada and the northern United States to refineries in the Gulf coast of Texas.
On July 19, the National Defense University's Center for Transatlantic Security Studies and the Atlantic Council held a major conference to present the conclusions of a comprehensive project on the future of the United States European Command (EUCOM).
This year-long study, co-chaired by Hans Binnendijk, Robert Hunter, Harlan Ullman, and Barry Pavel, was conducted to provide EUCOM with an assessment of the intended, likely, and uncertain consequences of recent events and trends in defense policy. The conference featured a presentation of multiple issue briefs that assess the following conditions and circumstances and what they mean for the future of EUCOM:
- Implications for EUCOM and the broader South and Central Asian region of the drawdown of coalition forces from Afghanistan;
- Implications for EUCOM in the aftermath of NATO's Operation Unified Protector in Libya and of the ongoing political turmoil and violence in the greater Middle East;
- Implications for EUCOM of major cuts to defense spending in Europe and the United States and especially inside NATO.
