This book offers the first comprehensive assessment of the various
internal and external measures undertaken by the European Union to
guarantee security of oil and gas supply. It sets out and analyses
in a coherent and thorough manner those aspects of EU external
policy that are relevant in establishing a framework for
guaranteeing energy security for the Union. What makes the book
unique is that it is the first of its kind to bridge the gap
between EU energy and EU external policy. The book discusses EU
policy towards the major oil and gas producing countries of Russia,
the Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf at the bilateral as well as
regional and multilateral level. It brings together not only the
dimensions of trade and investment but also other important aspects
of external policy, namely development and foreign policy. The
author argues that the EU's energy security cannot be achieved
through adopting a purely internal approach to energy issues, but
that it is necessary to adopt a holistic approach to external
policy, covering efficient economic relations as well as
development co-operation and foreign policies towards energy
producing countries. The book will be a valuable resource for
students of EU law, WTO law or international energy law, as well as
scholars and practitioners dealing with energy issues.
