Professor Dannenmaier Speaks at Symposium for Tomorrow's Leaders
Principals from every high school in Indiana selected two junior students to attend the Richard G. Lugar Symposium for Tomorrow's Leaders at the University of Indianapolis on December 11, 2010.
Professor of Law, Eric Dannenmaier, was asked to participate in this year's event and addressed the group on the topics of food and energy security . Professor Dannenmaier spoke on questions such as “How does the growing global demand for food and energy resources impact our economic and national security? Why should you, as an individual, be concerned about food shortages and what impact do they have on the global community both now and in the future? What role will the availability of petroleum play in global diplomacy? What role can Hoosier farmers, as well as farmers around the world, play in a comprehensive food and energy security strategy?”
Professor Dannenmaier researches water and energy security topics, and delivered a paper on water security in Marrakesh, Morocco, at a NATO sponsored scientific workshop in spring of 2010. He is currently finishing work on a co-authored paper addressing “Energy Security as a National Security Challenge” funded by the Pew Charitable Trust.
