DPP faculty member publishes new book on Global Energy Governance

The global market for oil and gas resources is rapidly changing. Three major trends - the rise of new consumers, the increasing influence of state players, and concerns about climate change - are combining to challenge existing regulatory structures, many of which have been in place for a half-century. "Global Energy Governance" analyzes the energy market from an institutionalist perspective and offers practical policy recommendations to deal with these new challenges.

Project status: 
"Common Goals – Different Approaches?" is a two-year research and dialogue program jointly implemented by the  Global Public Policy Institute, Berlin and the Brookings Institution. The project will focus on the role of markets and institutions in fostering global energy security. Rather than adopting a traditional security lens to studying energy security, this project will assess ways in which global energy governance can be strengthened by creating and deepening markets, and adapting the "rules of the game". The project combines policy research with constructive and forward-looking transatlantic dialogue among researchers, industry experts and policymakers.
