Abstract

The authors discuss the ambiguities surrounding allusions often made to global energy governance, focusing mainly on the question of energy transit. They discuss how the issue has been sanctioned in various regimes in international law (including the UN Convention on the Law of the Seas, the Energy Charter Treaty and Article V of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade). They go further to expatiate on the complexities of this governance regime that is rendered even more convoluted by regional energy transit provisions included in important regional treaties such as those of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the European Union (EU).

Keywords: global energy governance, fragmentation of the global energy governance regime, energy transit, Energy Charter Conference, WTO, NAFTA, ASEAN, EU

JEL Classification: N7, Q41, Q43, Q48
