Douglas Hengel

Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Energy, Sanctions and Commodities; currently Adjunct Professor at John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies presents:

“Searching for Energy Security”

douglas hengel b
The world is in the midst of the most severe energy crisis since the Arab Oil Embargo of the 1970s.  Energy security has returned to the center of the global agenda.  How will countries meet their energy needs going forward with prices at such high levels?  Will the shock waves from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine accelerate or slow the transition to cleaner energy to address climate change?  How might global geopolitics be impacted by this energy crisis?  Will the energy transition mean new vulnerabilities related to critical minerals and clean energy supply chains?
Douglas Hengel is a former American diplomat who worked extensively on global economic and energy issues, including as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Energy, Sanctions and Commodities.  In that capacity, his responsibilities included formulating and advancing United States’ international energy policy and being a member of the Governing Board of the International Energy Agency.  Mr. Hengel served at the U.S. Embassies in Rome, Bratislava, Prague, Lima, and Caracas, in addition to a variety of assignments in Washington.  Currently, Mr. Hengel teaches The Geopolitics of Energy at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, DC, works with LNG Allies, a trade association for the U.S. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry, and is a Visiting Fellow at The German Marshall Fund of the United States.
Mr. Hengel is originally from New York, attended Colgate University, and has a Masters in Public Policy from the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs.  He is married and has two children.

WACA’s Cover to Cover 

December’s webinar features renowned philosopher Martha C. Nussbaum, of the University of Chicago, to discuss her new book, Justice for Animals: Our Collective Responsibility, on Friday, Dec. 9 at 2 PM ET.
Global wildlife populations have sunk 69% since 1970, World Wildlife Fund reports. Forest clearing, polluted oceans, and human exploitation have led to the rapid emptying of wildlife in the natural world. In her new book, Professor Nussbaum seeks a solution by taking a revolutionary approach to animal rights, ethics, and law.
