In this research track the growing importance of energy politics in the international relations in the Mediterranean Area will be analysed. Concretely, this means the impact of the energy dimension on the existing regional cooperation, on bilateral and multilateral political relations. Research topics will include: Socio-Economic Processes provoked by current European energy policies in the Mediterranean region; short-, medium- and long-term impact of the implementation of large energy projects (e.g. Desertec, Mediterranean Solar Plan) on the societies in North Africa; Energy scenarios for the Euro-Mediterranean area, including societal questions on the consuming, wasting or effective using habits of energy resources; the interrelationship between societal and cultural habits of the consumer and the developing societies with politics and environment; climate change as a global and regional Mediterranean challenge.
