This is an advanced International Relations course focused on the relation between security and energy supplies, with a particular focus on three major global actors: the US, Russia and Turkey in order to assess how they interact in the South-Caucasus.
Assessing the evolution of theory and practice of national security in the last twenty years, this course will illustrate the concept of energy security and its implications on States’ behavior. In particular, the policies of Russia, Turkey and the US will be investigated as well as how the State control - or influence - over some key strategic resources and areas is crucial in the XXI century international scenario.
The approach will be comparative and diachronic. In particular, illustrating the relevance of the Caspian region into different eras, students will learn to critically analyze the interactions.
