Course aim

This course will provide students with a general overview of the present international policy framework and
geopolitical issues for energy and natural resources. The course will cover changes to the political landscape in
energy and natural resources and how this has shaped the current geopolitical energy debate.

Course content

The course will focus on:

  • Energy and natural resources.
  • Their geographical location and its context.
  • The domestic and external policy response of energy producing and consuming countries.

The course provides students with an understanding of the themes and patterns emerging globally in this area
as well as addressing some of the international issues that govern today’s geopolitical energy debate. An
understanding of the choices and strategic decisions of energy importing and exporting countries of specific
geographical areas will provide students with an overview of how the international policy framework influences
individual country strategies, as well as how geographical location of energy sources impact international policy.

The course will initially focus on conventional oil and gas but will also address some current geopolitical shifts, such as the unconventional oil and gas revolution, the response to new technologies that put new energy producers on the map as well as the emergence of new consumers and how these shifts change the global market and geopolitical scene.
