EUCERS Undergraduate Summer School

Since 2011 EUCERS collaborates with the Summer School Office at King’s College on a summer programme on Global Energy Politics. This year's programme is again taught by Alexandra-Maria Bocse, who is currently completing a PhD in Politics and International Studies at the Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge. Global Energy Politics is a highly innovative and unique course, which looks at a range of issues such as energy security for importing countries, the geopolitics of energy, war for natural resources, the political economy of energy and the politics of climate change. The course aims to bridge the gap between academic theory and the logic of real-world politics through off-campus visits to energy companies and energy analysts and also features a simulation of international climate change negotiation, challenging the students to apply their knowledge to a real-world problem. Most importantly, this course provides a clear conceptual framework, which will make it easier to understand the energy challenges of the future.
