The Politics and Economics of International Energy
E657 | Autumn | 6ECTS
Economic growth requires constantly growing use of energy, and the availability of sufficient sources of energy on a global scale is not for granted. Energy – oil, gas, power – remains one of the biggest businesses, and maintains a strategic characterization that sets it aside from other economic sectors. As such, it attracts the attention of industrial, financial and political actors internationally. The course aims at providing students with the critical knowledge and skills to avoid superficial generalizations and simplifications – which unfortunately remain all too common.
