This roundtable aims to begin a discussion on the role of gas in Europe due to Russia's war against Ukraine. Gas was considered to be an economic bridge between Russia and Western Europe. After Central European states joined the European Union, they brought along their Soviet-era gas ties. For more than fifteen years, the EU has worked to increase the security of supply. But what about the role of justice and climate change in this discussion? The link between human rights and energy is traditionally associated with oil and gas outside of Europe. The speakers on this roundtable will reflect on the reframing of gas in Europe in terms of understanding the geopolitical, climate, and justice perspectives in a broader regional framing, including the Mediterranean and Middle East sources of gas.
