Oil and Gas Politics in Israel


In this online lecture, Dr Rettig will focus on patterns of conflict and co-operation over newly discovered energy resources in Israel and the East Mediterranean region.

He will examine the geopolitcal implications of Israel’s different gas export options to Europe, how viable each option actually is, and how Europe’s energy crisis has affected oil and gas flows in the region.

Dr Elai Rettig is a lecturer in the Dept of Political Studies at Bar-Ilan University. He specialises in energy geopolitics, national security and international environmental politics. He previously served as the “Israeli Institute Teaching Fellow’ in the Dept of Jewish, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies (JIMES) at Washing University in St Louis and as an adjunct lecturer of energy management in Texas.
