Understanding the nexus of energy, environment and conflict: An overview

Samuel W. Kerber, Payne Institute Fellow Alexander Q. Gilbert, Faculty Fellow Mark R. Deinert, and Director Morgan D. Bazilian write about how energy, environment, and conflict are each the subject of significant research efforts. However, their nexus has received relatively little attention, and even less when climatic shifts are considered. Here, we examine existing literature on these individual areas, their overlaps, and elucidate the fundamental gaps in understanding their nexus.  August 13, 2021.
