Azerbaijan and the New Energy Geopolitics of Southeastern Europe

Edited by Margarita Assenova and Zaur Shiriyev

Azerbaijan and the New Energy Geopolitics of Southeastern Europe comes at a critical time when concerns about energy security are growing in the midst of military, economic, and energy conflicts in East and Southeast Europe. As the construction of the Southern Gas Corridor from Azerbaijan to Europe is advancing, natural gas from the Caspian region will challenge the gas monopoly of any single supplier in Southeast Europe, thus changing the geopolitical landscape in the region.

An edited volume with ten chapters, this study enhances our understanding of Southeast Europe’s energy security and the potential impact of the Southern Gas Corridor. The book focuses attention on Azerbaijan’s aspiring role as an energy supplier and contributor to energy security in Southeast Europe, its evolving relations with countries in the region, and, consequently, Baku’s expanding relations with the European Union and the United States.
