GOV 1247. Geopolitics of Energy

This course is an introduction to geopolitics of energy. The primary objective is to gain in-depth knowledge of the interconnected challenges facing the energy sector—and more broadly, the political, economic, and social actors involved. Emphasis is on introducing an academic understanding of geopolitics of energy and investigating how politics and space are inseparable. This course includes three main case studies: (A) EU-Russian energy relations, (B) energy transition in Ukraine and Ukrainian emerging soft power since the Chernobyl disaster, (C) coercive diplomacy towards Russia and Iran.
