Black Sea in Access Denial Age


Please join Romania Energy Center (ROEC) for a presentation, followed by a discussion, of its latest Special Report titled “Black Sea in Access Denial Age”. This Special Report is part of a larger ROEC project with the same name ( implemented by our center in the second half of 2015 and co-sponsored by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The special Report was co-authored by an interdisciplinary team of experts: Octavian Manea (international affairs and security focus), George Visan (military focus), Armand Gosu (Russian studies and hybrid warfare focus) and Eugenia Gusilov (energy focus). This Report is the flagship output of the analytical effort to explore the implications of an emerging anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) bubble in the Black Sea along three key dimensions: militarization of Crimea and NATO’s potential offset strategy; hybrid warfare, and upstream access denial. The event will take place on February 15, 2016, at the Academy of Economic Science in Bucharest and is open to the public. Due to limited seats, RSVP is required.
