Resolved:  The U.S. Should Re-energize its Nuclear Power Industry

Georgetown University vs. Northwestern University

Introduction by John Hamre, President and CEO, CSIS

Welcoming judges:

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

Tom Lawler, Principal at Lawler Strategies

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.

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