Announcement – First paper in EUTIP Working Paper Series

EUTIP has started its new Working Paper series with EUTIP Working Paper 01/2019. The EUTIP Working Papers series provides a forum for in-depth academic analysis of the EU trade and investment policy in any relevant research discipline (law, economics, political science, other). Researchers in this field of inquiry are invited to submit their manuscripts to m.trybus@bham.ac.uk.

This first EUTIP Working Paper 01/2019 by Andrea Rocco entitled “The Impact of the Post Lisbon Energy Policy on EU Natural Gas Supplying Countries” analyses the effects of the post Lisbon approach and of the recent EU energy regulatory measures on the EU-Russia natural gas relationship. Moreover, it provides insights on the possible impact of the EU energy policy on the other EU natural gas suppliers. He argues that, notwithstanding the measures adopted could effectively boost EU independence and facilitate negotiations on equal footing with extra-EU suppliers, the future of the EU-Russia relationship will still be driven by bilateral interests of economic and political nature.
