PUBP 710-008: Geopolitics of Energy Security

This course introduces students to the complex global setting where energy security and geopolitics intersect and the implications for policy makers.

Nation-states have a geopolitical identity or geopolitical aspirations for influence. Access to energy is an important factor is those aspirations. Even small states (like Israel and Azerbaijan) can play a global geopolitical role that impact on energy security. Indeed, geopolitics is about nation-states – individual states or groupings (formal or informal) of nation-states like the EU.
