INST 290 Energy & Global Politics
Cross-listed with POSC 290-07. Does oil cause war? Do energy-producing countries develop differently than energy-consuming ones? Will the advent of alternative energy sources make global politics and economics more stable? In this course, we look at the past, present, and future of the global energy market and its effects on global politics--and vice versa. Our goal is to understand the theories that political scientists and students of international relations have developed to answer these questions and to help you prepare for coming transformations in the way the world works.
