DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Energy in Europe and Russia is in flux. The authors address key issues in this context and seek to analyze contemporary transition processes in the region's energy sector. They look at whether and how transnational policy mechanisms can generate sufficient steering capacity to address pressing energy policy issues, including environmental concerns, energy transit or rapidly changing natural gas markets. Moreover, they explore the impact climate change concerns have on policy making in the energy sector and to what extent market mechanisms provide for answers to these issues. Instead of taking a geopolitical or neoliberal approach, this energy policy debate acknowledges the strong interdependence of global, regional and domestic influences on the processes.

Reviews

'Moving beyond traditional approaches this book firmly locates the study of energy within International Political Economy. It is a highly innovative collection of essays that marks a more nuanced understanding of topical issues in energy and governance.' - Professor Richard Higgott, Vice Chancellor Murdoch University, Perth, Australia

'By bringing together a world class range of scholars this book provides a valuable and highly diverse range of perspectives on one of the 21st century's most challenging and important topics. It reaches beyond questions associated purely with EU-Russia energy relations, as well as opening up the analysis of energy governance to the crucial fields of climate change mitigation, energy efficiency and development.' - Dr Joseph Stanislaw, CEO, The JA Stanislaw Group and Independent Senior Advisor, Energy and Sustainability, Deloitte LLC, USA

'By refusing to underplay the complexities of energy governance in Europe and Russia, this volume emerges as a rich and thought provoking analysis. As a whole, it manages to provide contextualised explanations for energy governance change, differing political approaches to energy, as well as ways in which energy policy is coming to take account of climate change mitigation objectives.' -Professor Catherine Mitchell, Energy Policy Group, University of Exeter, UK

'The book contributes to the wider debate within IPE regarding the challenges to the concept of neo-liberal institutionalism… Without a doubt the authors bring in a new perspective to the concept of governance on energy issues from an IPE perspective. This book points the IPE debate towards the right direction and enriches our understanding about the dynamisms of energy governance in two of the most important regions of the world and how different factors affect that governance.' - Ishrak Ahmed Siddiky, Oil, Gas and Energy Law
