Energy Security and International Relations

The aim of the proposed collaboration is to identify and conduct leading research that combines the geopolitical understanding of policy-making and international relations with the business perspective of how public and private companies need to operate as policies evolve.

Subjects to be addressed include the following:

  • The different perspectives on what energy security means and how it can be achieved  – particularly between producer and consumer nations;
  •  Actions taken by nations to “securitise” energy supplies
  • The evolving role of energy security as a key element in the relationship between nations and regions
  •  How are the flows of international investment being influenced or restricted as governments become more concerned by energy security
  • What role do the public/private sectors have in attempting to ensure specifically understood notions of energy security?
  • What role do renewable energy sources have in attempting to ensure specifically understood notions of energy security?
  • How is energy security affecting the relationships between companies and state bodies?

  • Are the key institutions involved in negotiating energy security suited to this role?
