This course aims to provide you with an understanding of the basic principles of International Energy Law and how an independent body of knowledge is developing in this field. We will focus on how public and private international law consider the various actors, socio-economic interests, and environmental concerns associated with the exploitation of energy sources, and attempt to provide targeted legal tools and instruments that regulate energy production and consumption. At the end of the semester, you will be able to critically assess the key legal issues around the exploitation of energy sources from a multidisciplinary and global standpoint.
