This course puts a test on conventional theoretical approaches on global energy issues. It is based upon empirical evidence of the current trends on the global energy markets, unveiling policy issues in the study of energy that span across political science and international economics.The course takes a very broad view and introduces students to energy as understood by scholars of international security and cooperation as well as economic and political development. We investigate the major policy issues of the day: the development and current status of the global energy markets, with particular emphasis on Russia, EU, China and the USA.The role of the international organizations is given the focal place, especially the historical importance, the current development and future relevance of OPEC.The course attributes a special role to the influence on the industry of the technological progress in alternative energies and the “threat” of fracking to traditional gas producers.
