Transregional energy infrastructures and authoritarian power beyond the state

Jenss, Dr. Alke / Dr. Benjamin Schütze (2023): „Transregional energy infrastructures and authoritarian power beyond the state“, in: Security in Context (Hg.), Security in Context Blog.
Kurze Beschreibung / Abstract:
While transregional energy infrastructure projects like the Central American Electrical Interconnection System (SIEPAC) and MedRing quite literally connect regions anew and envisage borderless energy flows, as we argue in an article recently published with Globalizations, these projects potentially prefigure politics: removing opportunities for democratic contestation, and fixing some specific energy futures in place and preventing others. The sustainability claims that accompany many large-scale transregional electricity grid interconnection projects open up a new means to push through highly contested projects.
