Energy Security in the Baltic Sea Region: Regional Coordination and Management of Interdependencies

2015
Categories:

The study maps changing energy relations in the Baltic Sea region in the aftermath of two events - the 2004 EU enlargement that has changed the political and institutional/regulatory landscape of the region and the outbreak of the armed conflict in Ukraine that has put the issue of energy security - and security in more general terms - very high on the European political agenda. It discusses how the regional distribution of energy resources and energy policies have contributed to altering the level of energy security in the whole region and in particular countries, how various actors have addressed energy security concerns by cooperative policies, in particular, EU wide and sub - regional (Nordic, Baltic) coordination measures aimed at managing energy interdependencies and increasing energy security.

Belarusian Regime Longevity: Happily Ever After..

2014
Categories:

The end of Cold War raised optimistic beliefs that democracy begins to prevail at least in Europe if not worldwide. Francis Fukuyama even spoke of the End of History, having in mind, inter alia, that after all countries choose democracy as the only feasible political regime, the studies of transitology will get discarded to the archives of history. Unfortunately quite the opposite happened: it turned out that democracy can pave the ground for the return on non-democratic regimes. Belarus is the example of authoritarian rule not only not only regaining its strength, but what makes it even worse - creating or exploiting the existing situation both within and outside the country as a tool of consolidating power in hands of one man. This book will find its reader among those interested in political processes within Eastern Europe as well as those studying political transition not towards democracy but the opposite way. But most of all will this book be interesting to those in search of alternative answers and causality in analysis of political phenomena.

Authors of articles: Jovita Pranevičiūtė-Neliupšienė, Tomas Janeliūnas, Laurynas Jonavičius, Vytis Jurkonis, Kristina Vaičiūnaitė, Zhanna Maksimiuk, Valentinas Beržiūnas, Tadas Pikčiūnas, Laurynas Kasčiūnas, Juljan Jachovič.
