Energy and Geopolitics - Public lecture by Professor Jørgen Ørstrøm Møller

Picture of the sun setting

Over the last ten years, US has swung from being the third biggest net importer of energy to becoming a net exporter. The energy markets now are no longer fully stable though, why the increase in output cannot be sold at a reasonable price unless some of the existing suppliers are squeezed out.

US try to do so in agreements with countries such as Saudi-Arabia, Qatar and Iran. Here, China’s role is pivotal because the only market big enough is the Chinese market. China, however, will demand something in return for giving US a share of its market. How will this enhance China’s global power?

The Centre for Military Studies, ThinkChina and Danish Foreign Policy Society have the pleasure to host a public lecture with Professor Jørgen Ørstrøm Møller, who will address this topic.

Professor Møller has been a prominent voice in debates about the political economy and international politics for decades. He is a Visiting Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) and an Adjunct Professor at Singapore Management University & Copenhagen Business School.
