College Champions Debate Nuclear Energy

May 8, 2013 • 5:45 – 7:00 pm EDT

The CSIS Abshire-Inamori Leadership Academy (AILA) and Nuclear Energy Program are pleased to invite you to a public debate on the future of nuclear energy in the United States.

This past year, hundreds of university students around the country spent countless hours researching, strategizing, and debating U.S. energy policy. It is with great pleasure that CSIS brings the two highest-rated teams—representing Georgetown and Northwestern—to debate about whether the United States should commit to revitalizing its nuclear power industry.

The event will also feature senior experts to serve as guest “judges” to provide feedback and commentary. The distinguished panel of experts includes David Banks, Senior Fellow and Deputy Director of the Nuclear Energy Program at CSIS, Scott Segal, Founding Partner of the Policy Resolution Group at Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, and Tom Lawler, Principal at Lawler Strategies.

A cocktail reception with appetizers will begin at 5:15 PM. The debate will commence at 5:45 PM.

This event is made possible with support from the Policy Resolution Group at Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, the Southern Company and the Nuclear Energy Institute.
