Research Handbook on International Energy Law

Edited by Kim Talus, Professor of European Law, University of Eastern Finland
International energy law is an elusive but important concept. There is no body of law called ‘international energy law’, nor is there any universally accepted definition for it, yet many specialised areas of international law have a direct relationship with energy policy. The Research Handbook on International Energy Law examines various aspects of international energy law and offers a comprehensive account of its basic concepts and processes.

International energy law is an elusive but important concept. There is no body of law called ‘international energy law’, nor is there any universally accepted definition for it, yet many specialised areas of international law have a direct relationship with energy policy. The Research Handbook on International Energy Law examines various aspects of international energy law and offers a comprehensive account of its basic concepts and processes.

Adopting a practical approach, the Handbook traces the wide and somewhat informal notion of international energy law and covers the latest developments in the field. The expert contributors offer original research and analysis on pertinent topics such as energy investment, international energy disputes and energy trade. In addition to examining public international law issues and their application to energy activities, the Handbook also includes studies focused on private contractual arrangements and provides an angle on the human rights aspects of energy.

This book will be a valuable tool for the expert audience – both academics and practitioners – and will provide students and early career practising lawyers with a good understanding of what ‘international energy law’ really means.
‘The book's diverse topics, and impressive array of authors will make it a useful resource to a wide array of energy lawyers. The world's energy, environmental, and economic goals present a monumental hill to climb; the Research Handbook on lntemational Energy Law should be welcomed for beginning to illuminate the path.’
– James W.Coleman, International Energy Law Review
