En résumé

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).

Le concepteur

Sciences Po est une institution d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche en sciences humaines et sociales qui consacre 35% de son budget à la recherche.
Fondée en 1871, elle forme depuis 140 ans les responsables de demain, dans le secteur privé comme dans la haute administration, la politique et la recherche.
Sciences Po se caractérise par une internationalisation poussée : sur les 12 000 étudiants que compte l’établissement, 46% sont des étudiants internationaux et viennent de plus de 150 pays. Sciences Po investit dans la responsabilité sociale et fait de la diversité sociale et culturelle une composante structurante de son identité. 27 % des étudiants éligibles sont boursiers à Sciences Po. Ils étaient 6% en l’an 2000.

Sciences Po contribue au débat public par sa recherche et par la variété des débats et conférences qui y sont organisés chaque année.
Depuis une dizaine d’années, Sciences Po s’emploie à intégrer les outils numériques à ses enseignements (espaces de travail partagés, eCours, Moodle, Cartothèque en ligne, cartographie des controverses, projet Forccast etc.) et s’est donc naturellement intéressé au format proposé par les MOOCs et aux nouvelles possibilités offertes en matière d’innovation pédagogique.
