The discovery of massive quantities of hydrocarbons in both the Israeli and Cypriot exclusive economic zones, and the selection of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline, redraws the Eastern Mediterranean's hydrocarbon map and will significantly impact international energy security policies. This transformation has emerged against a backdrop of major political upheavals still underway throughout the area.  To address this development and explore its implications, Hudson Institute convened a major policy conference on October 22, 2013, and welcomed a number of distinguished American and international diplomats, legislators, business leaders, scholars, and legal and military experts as participating guests. The proceedings were divided into three distinct panel discussions: the first on "Political and Security Changes in the Eastern Mediterranean"; the second on "Implications of the Emerging Strategic Relationship of Israel, Greece, and Cyprus, and Turkey's Drift Towards Authoritarianism and Islamism"; and the third on "The Changing Eastern Mediterranean Energy Security Environment."
