Princeton Global Scholar
Other Academic Programs
Princeton Global Scholars are cross appointed by Princeton University and their "home" academic institution. In my case there are two "home" institutions:
- The Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) at Sciences-Po in Paris
- The Graduate Institute for International and Development Studies in Geneva, where I reside.
At PSIA, I am the Scientific Director of the Master in International Energy.
Energy supply and use will remain at the center of the political debate internationally as well as nationally. Creation of a single European energy market remains a major challenge for the Union, and has profound consequences on its external relations. Energy policies need to be adopted at the national and subnational level, and be coordinated internationally; but popular acceptance is often lacking and free riding is a strong temptation.
Energy expertise is therefore in growing demand worldwide. Governments, financial institutions, policy studies think tanks and the media need professionals with sufficient technical knowledge of energy issues to engage in competent debate. Energy companies – which are turning into an increasingly numerous and diverse universe – need public policy experts to advise on political and social acceptability of technological solutions and business strategies.
The PSIA International Energy Master aims at forming experts that will be capable of competently filling these professional requirements with a strong international outlook and understanding of complex interrelations between different issues, actors and technological solutions.
