St. Petersburg: The Changing Energy Landscape

Study Abroad

An increasingly serious attitude toward the Paris Agreement implies a substantial change to world economics through decarbonization efforts. This will require considerable cooperation between the hydrocarbon resource countries and energy consumers. There are many geopolitical and economic obstacles and it is of paramount importance to foster discussion on the future of energy in a decarbonized world.

The program is aimed to generate a discussion of the reasons for and the consequences of oil price dynamics and its implications for other fossil fuels, as well as its relation to international decarbonization efforts. The program will focus on the latest developments in the Russian energy sector, as a central piece in the European energy market, and the implications of sanctions for its further development.

This interdisciplinary course is aimed at students of economics, business, world economy, political science, international relations, energy studies/security, and sustainability studies.
