This course provides a critical understanding of contemporary energy security: its contested conceptualisations, relationship to other forms of security, and embeddedness within the modern state. These issues will be explored by considering the interrelationship between energy, economic and societal resilience, expanding beyond the traditional “consumer” state perspective to the energy-economic nexus of producer states and attendant geopolitical strategies. The course examines the globalisation of energy security and the rise of non-conventional energy sources, and the flow-on effects for national security policy.

Learning Outcomes

1. Demonstrate a critical understanding of the contemporary evolution of energy securitisation

2. Identify and explain the concepts and assumptions of the energy-economic security nexus from both the consumer state and producer state perspective

3. Evaluate the national security challenges posed by contemporary regional and international energy trends

4. Critically analyse national energy security policy and communicate this knowledge to specialists and non-specialists
