Description: This course examines global trends in the production and use of energy, its impact on governance and the environment, and the dynamic forces shaping the sector: energy security, trade, and climate change. We examine the firm’s role in these areas, and the “above ground” risks arising from political, social and environmental forces. We also examine energy from the perspective of states, whether the big exporters like Russia and the Middle East, demand centers in Asia and Europe, or underdeveloped countries in Latin America and Africa seeking to leverage domestic reserves for export revenues and domestic development. Students will use academic theory and case discussion to highlight energy business challenges in countries with diverse political systems and wide-ranging levels of economic development.
