The Great Caspian Energy Game: New Dimensions
In this episode Dr. Robert Cutler, a Senior Research Fellow and Program Editor for the NATO Association of Canada's Energy Security Program, interviews Mariana Liakopoulou about her recent article about how the global commodity market and national energy policy developments have affected US and European willingness to continue pursuit of their geopolitical and economic interests in the Caspian-region and Central Asian Oil- and gas-producing sales. This is a shift from the 1990s and early 2000s, when important projects were commissioned. However, these shifts in US and the EU energy policies, combined with ongoing market developments, do not imply that those Caspian-region and Central Asian states are losing their geopolitical significance.
