Energy security, trade and the EU: Regional and international perspectives

Rafael Leal-Arcas, Costantino Grasso, Juan Alemany Ríos

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Energy security is a burning issue in a world where 1.4 billion people still have no access to electricity. This book is about finding solutions for energy security through the international trading system. Focusing mainly on the European Union as a case study, this holistic and comprehensive analysis of the existing legal and geopolitical instruments strives to identify the shortcomings of the international and EU energy trade governance systems, concluding with the notion of a European Energy Union and what the EU is politically prepared to accept as part of its unified energy security.
