INAF U6080y Energy Industry in the Middle East and Africa 3 pts.

Course Number INAF 6080

Call#/Section 67297 001

F 10:00a - 11:50a

418 International Affairs Bldg

Instructor: A. Shrier

This course will examine the energy business in oil and gas-exporting countries of the Middle East and Africa, which will assume an increasingly important role in the international energy business during the coming decades. Not only do Middle East and African producers account for a vast share of global energy resources and a high percentage of oil and gas trade flows, but they are becoming major, fast-rising consumers in their own right. In general, managing economic development in these countries will present a major challenge to their governments. Nowhere is this more so than in the energy sector, where policy issues facing the governments include, inter al., the nature and extent of foreign direct investment and the appropriate role of foreign companies. Lectures will draw on first-hand experience of the instructors and published materials, and students will make presentations and participate in case study discussions.
