Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


This paper will use Andrew Moravcsik’s Liberal Theory to investigate the choices and reasons for Germany to pursue the Nord Stream II pipeline and their general dependence and import of Russian gas. Our analysis will be concluding on the social groups preferences, in the form of business and important individuals, shining through to state level. Here the representation of the state will be pro-Russian as well, continuing an attitude and policy which has been established by Gerhart Schröder and his party in the post-cold war. Lastly, the Third Energy Package framework of the EU went against the business preferences of Germany, thus the EU leading country Germany went against the EU framework and wishes of (primarily) Eastern European states and created the NS2.
