Energy security in Europe is one of the most important issues for sustainable development. Having no or only limited energy resources, most European countries are in need of oil and natural gas supplies. However, heavy demand for natural gas from Russia makes the majority of EU Member States absolutely dependent on Russian gas. This sometimes brings unfavorable consequences and drives the EU to search for such alternative sources as Central Asia. This book contains three interconnected chapters which study the partnership between the EU, Russia, and Central Asia and analyzes future perspectives for cooperation especially in the field of natural gas supply. Furthermore, the book reveals the benefits and obstacles deriving from the interests of each, thus creating a picture of possible collaboration between them. Besides, the author use clear, plain language so as to help the reader better understand the matter.
