Abstract

The “Unconventional Oil Revolution” is a challenging topic that has profound consequences at both economic, technological and geopolitical levels.
In particular, the rise of US tight oil production could dramatically impact on US domestic and international energy policy strategies, driving a global spin in the world energy scenario.
The expectations on unconventional oil growth and the possibility of a shift in the balance of energy exchange could deeply change the US presence and intervention in some critical areas of the world. It could also lead to the rise of new players and different approaches in managing complex relations.
John M. Deutch -internationally acclaimed expert on the issue- will deliver an International Lecture on "The global revolution of unconventional oil: new markets, new governances, new policies" to address the complex consequences related to the unconventional hydrocarbons revolution, focusing primarily on US foreign policy, the driving forces leading towards a new world energy balance, the role of new players in a renewed energy scenario and the related political, sociological and geostrategic dynamics.

This FEEM lecture is organised as part of the activities of FEEM's Economy and Society Research Programme.
