Energy and Environmental Security (3028IBA)

This course examines the various approaches of governments, the business sector, and the general community to two of the key realities of our planet: rapidly diminishing energy resources and widespread, serious deterioration of environmental conditions. Key issues that are addressed include current energy and environmental problems, along with the basic policy and regulatory responses of governments, and the measures undertaken by inter-governmental organisations; the ways in which governments and businesses interact in the context of scarce energy resources; the strategies employed by the business sector at the domestic and global levels in dealing with, and attempting to profit from, environmental problems and limited energy resources; and in particular the approach of Australia and certain other countries in the Asia-Pacific region to energy and environmental security problems. This course aims to explore these issues at both the domestic and international levels, but in particular within an international relations context. This course is normally a Day offering at Nathan campus in Semester 2.
