About this book

This book investigates the current status and future prospects of energy relationships in the Euro-Mediterranean region. By adopting a political economy perspective, this book provides insight into regional cooperation in the fields of natural gas and renewable energy. The author posits that regional energy relations have yet to be examined through a comprehensive analytical framework in order to realistically assess the potential role of energy in acting as a catalyst for greater economic and political cooperation in the region. To do so, the author provides a detailed analysis of the region’s energy relations and pertinent case studies. Chapters illustrate the political and economic drivers underpinning the region’s energy dynamics, providing the reader with a wide-ranging overview of the Euro-Mediterranean energy relations of today and tomorrow.

Reviews

“The issues discussed in the book are very up-to-date, and the author’s style is clear and easy to read. The book does refer to the available literature pertaining to this subject, yet it displays a new and original approach. … Anyone who seeks to better understand energy policy and energy security in the Mediterranean region should definitely read this book.” (Mariusz Ruszel, Journal of Common Market Studies JCMS, Vol. 56 (6), September, 2018)
