Eurasian Energy Futures

The Atlantic Council, building on the solid track record of its Energy and Environment Program and its Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center in working on energy and regional issues, assembled a top-notch group of experts with wide-ranging experience and background in government, academia, think tanks, and industry. The Eurasian Energy Futures team helps decision-makers engage with stakeholders from industry, government, and NGOs and chart a course for sustainable development and trade of global energy resources. We work together with key political leaders, thinkers, analysts, and the top industrial players in the United States, Europe, and Eurasia to lead a strategic debate on the future of energy markets, produce papers on strategic Eurasian energy issues, and organize roundtable discussions, strategy sessions, workshops, and multi-day conferences.

Iran Task Force

This project, chaired by Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat, seeks to perform a comprehensive analysis of Iran's internal political landscape—as well as its role in the region and globally. Through Atlantic Council issue briefs, reports, and public and private meetings with key experts on Iran, the Task Force seeks to answer the question of whether there are elements within the country and region that can build the basis for an improved relationship with the West and how these elements, if they exist, could be utilized by US policymakers. The objective is to develop an accurate assessment of the challenges we face.

The Atlantic Council's Strategic Foresight Initiative seeks to navigate this uncertainty and provide guideposts for moving the world toward desired outcomes. Established in 2011 as a core practice of the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security at the Atlantic Council, the Strategic Foresight Initiative is an international hub for global trends and strategic foresight experts and leaders from governments, businesses, think tanks, and universities in the United States and other key countries that aims to enhance futures analysis and policymaking through a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities ahead.

The initiative develops actionable foresight by identifying and assessing long-term, emerging global trends; connecting them to current challenges to inform policy and draw implications for strategy; and designing innovative strategies to reach desired future scenarios.
