Energy issues have always been important in international relations, but in recent years may have become even more important than in the past due to the widespread awareness of existing limits to energy sources and negative climate impacts. The course discusses global trends in energy consumption and production, various available scenarios for potential developments in the coming decades, the availability of oil reserves and the evolution of the oil industry. It then discusses natural gas and highlights the differences between oil and gas. It will also discuss renewable energy sources, nuclear energy and EU energy policy. The course aims at providing students whose main interest is in international relations a background on energy resources, technology and economic realities to allow them to correctly interpret the political impact of current developments. It also aims at providing students, who already have a technical background in energy science or engineering, with the broad global view of energy issues that will allow them to better understand the social, economic and political impact of their technical knowledge. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR : Giacomo Luciani Scientific Advisor for the Master in International Energy at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) Sciences Po, Giacomo Luciani is also Adjunct Professor at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva and Director of the Executive Master in International Oil and Gas Leadership. For the period 2010-13 he was appointed Princeton University Global Scholar, attached to the Woodrow Wilson School and the Department of Near Eastern Studies. His research focuses on the political economy of the Middle East and North Africa and on global energy issues. RECOMMENDED BACKGROUND : The course requires no special scientific, mathematical or economic background; all key concepts are clearly and elementarily explained. It is expected that it will be of interest to undergraduate and graduate students in schools where an equivalent course is not offered (this being the case for the vast majority of schools).

With this course I have been able to better understand the role of energy in the development of the countries, and in a clear and simple way I have managed to understand how renewable energies work.

This is a very good course to grasp the fundamentals of the various forms of energy.

Admin detail: one week between exam-taking after two fails makes no practical sense and is detrimental to the timely completion of the course.

The course would also benefit from an actualization, with more analysis of recent economic & political trends:

- Oil market has historically been cyclical. Need an analysis of past cycles, and a fresh view on whether the current slump is part of a similar cycle, or a new era?

- America's insistence on energy independence, how/why Europe views independence differently, how China/India view their own?

- Current Middle-East politics Iraq-Iran-Saudi-Qatar, historical and current role of Saudi Arabia in the OPEC cartel, and the reality and dynamics of spare capacity within OPEC

Students should come out of this course with their own view of whether this is the last leg of the fossil fuel race (as hinted by Prof. Lucciani in the COP21 video), or just another bend.

Interesting insights but terribly uncritical. Nonetheless extremely useful for anyone who seeks to better understanding the geopolitcal and economic considerations at play in the production and distribution of energy (from a mainstream neoliberal perspective).

Course has good breadth and structure, exploring the economic and political side of international energy, however it would be good if a basic technical understanding of energy is incorporated.

Some material is rather outdated / inaccessible

The knowledge is abundant, but the assignment feedback is very poor from which it only shows me the score without any indication on the correct and wrong answers. Besides, the pending period for repeating a test is too long.

I think the administrators should also give complementary readings instead of lecture videos only.

Having a reference book or a journal would help a lot.

very disorganized course, without clear direction, and many lectures too long and unclear what their added value was. Many of the quiz questions were poorly formulated such as to be difficult to understand.
