POLI 2531 Politics of Energy and Climate in the U.S. and International Perspective (Spring: 3 )
Why is energy and climate policy fundamentally political, deeply entwined with human, national, and international security, and critical to global stability and well-being? Major course units assess the main actors and institutions in energy; including OPEC and international markets; contrast the primary challenges confronting energy policy in the exporting and importing states; evaluate the implications of climate disruption and the solutions across the sixty largest greenhouse gas emitting states; and analyze how energy and climate politics shapes global security and sustainability. Class members will also conduct a global climate negotiation and study in depth the regional security and political economy of the (Persian) Gulf states.
