European Union Internal Energy Market

Gulbinaite Simona & Leonaite Augustina

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project is based on the investigations of internal energy market which is one of the common European strategies contributing for creation of more secure Europe. The project aims to find out how internal energy market is being implemented, what obstacles it faces and whether it would contribute to energy security. Therefore the project is based on the two theoretical approaches : sociological institutionalism and rational choice institutionalism. The sociological institutionalism theory will be useful to define how the EU ( with the focus on the Commission) shapes the member states perception and behaviour. In other words, the Commission defines the informal and formal rules (‘Third energy package’) for the member states; how they should behave in order to create a common internal energy market. By its informal rules, the Commission emphasizes, that the energy security should be perceived as the common EU issue which requires the solidarity among the member states.
