26/04/2023 - 28/04/2023, Hybrid training course

The historic energy transition that the world is currently facing, driven by stronger decarbonization policies, rapid low-carbon technological developments, and a strong effort in public and global governance policies, is one of the most important geopolitical aspects of the century, with impacts on national, regional and global socio-economic dynamics. Additionally, Russia's invasion of Ukraine has heavily weighed on the global energy system, potentially making Europe vulnerable to gas supply interruptions.

The IAI's "Geopolitics of Energy Transition" specialization course, now in its fourth edition, aims to provide analytical tools to understand the political-economic dynamics of energy and environmental development and to analyze the geopolitical aspects and regional impacts of the global energy transition. Economic-political scenarios, the role of global actors and private entities, development and policy change factors, and specific case studies will be analyzed.
