STIA 419 - Energy & Environ in Eurasia
This course will focus on the role played by energy and environment in the evolution of the successor states to the Soviet Union.  The energy portion of the course will examine the challenges faced by energy-poor states in their transitions, as well as the very different challenges faced by oil and gas-rich successor states.  The environment portion of the course will examine the Soviet legacy of persistent pollutants and “national sacrifice zones” and how the states have attempted to address them, as well as the transboundary pollution problems.  The course will also review the role played by the successor states and the international community in attempting to improve the environment in this region, the emerging challenges posed to the region by climate change, and the resource management challenges (particularly in water) faced by these states.
