Energy Policy of the European Union (taught in ITALIAN)

when 19 September 2014 - 20 September 2014
duration 1 week
fee EUR 200

The well-established volatility in the price of oil and natural gases have highlighted the persistent vulnerability of the industrialized economies - and particularly European ones - to this kind of disturbance. Traditionally related to supplies from the Middle East, these economies have started - starting from the nineties, thanks to the emergence of a new international political context - a gradual process of differentiation of their procurement markets. The final outcomes of this process appear, however, still largely to be defined, while in a context characterized by strong volatility and heightened competition, the entry of the EU as a collective actor and the development of its procurement policy represented equally important breaking points.

Useful for the Diploma course in "European Affairs".

Target group

The course is intended for:

- Students
- Graduates
- Young professionals

Course aim

The course aims, therefore, at a twofold objective: on the one hand to analyze what are the current situation of the European energy market and the challenges that it seems destined to face in the future; on the other hand to understand what might be - within this framework - the role of supply markets, both traditional ones and those still emerging. The course is meant, therefore, both as an in-depth introduction to the problem of European energy in the gas and oil field, and as a starting point for possible future research, through additional specialist modules. The origin and the level of teachers, in addition to the spectrum of topics, allow to give to it a setting qualified and suited to the needs of a wide range of potential users.
