The Geopolitics of Energy focuses on topics related to the intersection of international politics, security, and energy. The Research Fellow or Visiting Scholar will contribute to the Geopolitics of Energy project's efforts to explore the nexus of politics — broadly defined — and energy, and to highlight policymaker issues of upcoming importance in this arena. A wide variety of research interests will be considered, including foreign-policy and national security implications of the unconventional oil and gas boom, resource nationalism, resource mercantilism, energy strategies of great powers, the future of OPEC, international institutions, and competition in the Arctic.
Of particular current interest to GEP are proposals related to the geopolitics of renewable energy. Geopolitics of Energy is an affiliated project of the Environment and Natural Resources Program (ENRP).
