Welcome to my Energy Security and International Relations blog. The express purpose of this blog is to analyze topics of energy security and, hopefully, inform readers about a field of IR that affects each of us.
I have always been interested in the natural gas industry, particularly in Gazprom and the machinations thereof. The WTO accession of Russia prompted me to begin writing this blog and begin examining such a fascinating field. As such, I will begin writing this blog by beginning a multi-part series on natural gas in general, Gazprom in general, and the effects of WTO accession on Gazprom, Russia, Europe, Central Asia, and the US. I will strive to be as objective and driven by evidence as possible, but, as with anything, I may deviate. Feel free to drop a comment if you feel I have examined something unfairly.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking through this blog.
