Gas Supply Security in an Energy Union

Gas Supply Security is a central pillar of a ‘successful’ Energy Union package. However, member states differ in their assessment of risks, exposure to risks, and support for proposed measures like joint gas purchasing or emergency response measures. In the seminar we want to explore potentially different perspectives at the German and Polish example and discuss:

-        What are the national circumstances, and what particular     interests result?

-        What instruments are preferred for energy security in different countries?

-        How to strengthen trust and solidarity as basis for ‘one European voice in global affairs’?
