How does oil wealth affect democracy and human rights in the Middle East? How did the Israeli-Arab conflict shape our global energy markets? How can we promote renewable energy in the Middle East, and how will the oil-rich regimes of the region survive the transition away from fossil fuels?

This course examines how the global energy markets operate and how they affect the politics and economics of the Middle East. Students interested in working in the energy/environmental industry or in the policy world will gain a deeper understanding of the profound impact that energy has on the security, growth and foreign policy of Israel, Iran, and the Arab countries of the region. Students will examine how these countries secure their energy markets and suppliers, how they (mis)manage their oil revenue, how they use energy resources as a foreign policy tool to advance either conflict and cooperation, and what role do renewables and nuclear energy have in the future of the Middle East. Students will then be tasked with writing their own policy papers to try and influence the process of energy policymaking in the region. While the course focuses on Israel and the Middle East, it is widely relevant to students interested in energy policy formulation in Europe, the United States and elsewhere.
