Abstract and Keywords
In many ways, everything once known about energy resources and technologies has been impacted by the long-standing scientific consensus on climate change and related support for renewable energy, the affordability of extraction of unconventional fuels, increasing demand for energy resources by middle- and low-income nations, new regional and global stakeholders, fossil fuel discoveries and emerging renewable technologies, awareness of (trans)local politics, and rising interest in corporate social responsibility and the need for energy justice. Research on these and related topics now appears frequently in social science academic journals, in broad-based journals, such as International Organization, International Studies Quarterly, and Review of International Political Economy, as well as those focused specifically on energy (e.g., Energy Research & Social Science and Energy Policy), the environment (Global Environmental Politics), natural resources (Resources Policy), and extractive industries (Extractive Industries and Society). The Oxford Handbook of Energy Politics synthesizes and aggregates this substantively diverse literature to provide insights into, and a foundation for teaching and research on, critical energy issues primarily in the areas of international relations and comparative politics. Its primary goals are to further develop the energy politics scholarship and community and generate sophisticated new work that will benefit a variety of scholars working on energy issues.
Keywords: climate change, corporate social responsibility, energy justice, energy security, fossil fuels, international and comparative political economy, nuclear power, regionalism, renewable energy resources
