The Transatlantic Academy in D.C. announced last week the arrival of its new group of fellows, who will spend the next nine months in residence studying “The Competition for Natural Resources – The New Geopolitical Great Game?” UNH Associate Professor of Political Science Stacy VanDeveer is among the six scholars chosen for this year’s Academy.

The Academy will consider how the rise of the new economic powers, especially China and India, a rapidly growing world population living increasingly in urban environments, climate change, and other factors will combine to increase the competition for natural resources in the years ahead, and how this will impact the transatlantic community.

The Transatlantic Academy is a scholarly forum for dealing with the mutual challenges facing transatlantic relations in the coming years.
