The course studies the relationship between energy and security in the international system. The emphasis is on the period after the Cold War, and even earlier periods. It discusses the various sources of energy and their actual and potential importance for the world economy: coal, oil, gas, nuclear and alternative energy sources. Today's global energy situation will be analyzed in light of security theories. A key question is whether there is a connection between global energy crises and military conflicts, and, if so, how these can be avoided.
The schedule will be available no later than one month before the start of the course. We do not recommend print-outs as changes can occur. At the start of the course, your department will advise where you can find your schedule during the course.
