Europe: Energy and the Environment - EUST3003

Year - 2019

Europe leads the global response to climate change and has sought, for some time, to create a single energy market. This unit explores the political economy and socio-cultural history of European environmental and energy issues. Europe's evolving energy dependencies and ecological degradation are examined with reference to European and national institutional and policy responses, the roles and activities of big business and social movements, and social consequences such as energy poverty and unequal ecological spatial impacts.
