This short presentation introduces the concept of the ‘Global Energy Dilemmas’ to examine the interrelationship between energy security, economic globalization and climate change policy.
Professor of Human Geography, Leicester University.
At present my research is organised around two major research themes: the territorial cohesion of the Russian Federation (this relates to the wider themes on Postcolonial Worlds and Governance, Power and Space); and global energy dilemmas (this relates to the Nature, Environment and Society theme). In one way or another, these two themes involve the inter-relationships between energy security, globalization, economic transformation, regional change, resource-based development, sustainable development and climate change. In recent years four projects have been completed and two are on going. I have also been involved in a number of ESRC funded seminars and a new seminar series entitled the Geographies of Energy Transition is just beginning.
