     View Summary

    The article examines the institutional dimensions of Russia's gas policy toward Northeast Asia (NEA(1) During the liberal economic reforms of the 1990s, development of natural gas deposits in the Russian Far East was made possible under the scheme of production sharing agreements (PSA). However, new PSAs were banned in Russia even before the advent of state capitalism in the early 2000s. This was, to a large extent, the result of strong anti-PSA lobbying led by the domestic energy business elite. Consequently, Russia's gas policy in the east began evolving from being project-specific toward being region-specific. Contemporary Russian gas policy toward NEA relies upon domestic (national and regional) and external institutions. In 2009, following the completion of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Sakhalin, Russia entered NEA gas markets. Transformations in the international gas markets facilitated the establishment of a two-pattern gas export policy in Russia in 2013. Under this policy, Russia's EU-oriented pipeline gas export remains monopolised by Gazprom, while Asia-oriented LNG export is partially liberalised. Russia has not been experiencing institutional discrepancy in NEA gas markets. However, as the markets evolve toward greater coordination, a rational option for Russia is to genuinely liberalise its gas policy. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

     View Summary

    A Tokyo-based economist and a noted western economic geographer, both specializing in the hydrocarbon resources of Russia, apply the framework of governance studies in an effort to gain a deeper understanding of the recent changes in the country's energy policy-making. The authors argue that, unlike the international relations paradigm prevailing in studies of Russia's energy policy, the country's multiple roles in the international energy arena (as producer, consumer, exporter, importer, and transit state) warrant a more nuanced approach, reflecting Russian energy policy's flexibility over time and diversity across space. This paper endeavors, therefore, to apply a political economy and governance perspective to an understanding of the significant changes in Russia's energy policy-making regarding its dynamic energy relations with the Northeast Asia (NEA; China, Japan, and South Korea). In exploring the complex interactions between Russia's internal energy policy-making and its emerging energy relations in NEA, the authors addresses three key questions, namely: (1) how Russia's Asian energy policy corresponds to its domestic needs, (2) how much coherence in energy governance and cooperation exists between Russia and the Northeast Asian states at the institutional and organizational levels, and (3) the extent to which Russia's expectations for increased energy cooperation with the Northeast Asian states are likely to materialize.

    Elena Shadrina

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF DISASTER RISK SCIENCE   3 ( 2 ) 69 - 83  2012.06

     View Summary

    The Fukushima nuclear disaster is a special case: a major twin natural disaster (earthquake and tsunami) incited a large-scale technological disaster, which resulted in a serious nuclear accident. Because the various costs are so tremendous, this triple disaster has had a pervasive impact on all aspects of life in Japan. This article describes nuclear energy policy transformation in the aftermath of the Fukushim a disaster. The study draws on theoretical propositions of governance and disaster risk governance, and demonstrates that a vested interest perspective is important to understanding the results of Japan's energy policy before Fukushima. Safety, democracy, and openness were the fundamental principles of Japan's nuclear energy policy when the country decided to diversify its energy sources in the 1950s. But these basic premises were undermined by the vested interests that controlled policy administration and implementation as the nuclear energy industry developed. Analysis of Japan's recent nuclear energy policy transformation covers such dimensions as policy targets, policy issues such as safety, the fuel cycle, waste disposal, administrative structure, public awareness, and national and local policy considerations. The study identifies process deficiencies in Japan's post-Fukushima nuclear energy policy transformation and evaluates possible ways to eliminate defects through administrative reorganization and independent safety oversight.

  • Resource Curse or Institutions Curse? Evidence from Hydrocarbon Rich Post-Soviet Economies.

    2020  

     View Summary

    Whathappens to economic performance in abundantly endowed by energy resources countrieswith strong state? The proposed research project addressed this question in thecontext of hydrocarbon resources-rich post-Soviet economies: Azerbaijan,Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan. The project aimed at examining empirically the contribution of two groups of factors – energy and institutions - toeconomic performance.

  • The Changing Patterns of Hierarchical Urban Systems in the Post-Soviet Economies: Analysis and Predictions

    2020   Kazuhiro Kumo

     View Summary

    Theproject aimed at examining the changes in the patterns of the hierarchical urbansystems in Russia. An urban agglomeration is invigorated by Dixit-Stiglitz typemonopolistic competition based on product differentiation and increasingreturns to scale (Fujita, Krugman & Venables 1999, Fujita & Thisse2002). In the Soviet practice, a corporate town, so-called monotown was foundedas a home to a limited number of specialised firms. The latter were functioningunder the principles of the centrally planned socialist economy (e.g.,non-existence of price signal). Such monotowns have been facing largerchallenges once the market transition began. The objectives of this project were: 1) to conduct comprehensive literature survey on the post-Soviettransformations of monotowns; 2) to compare principal findings in the existingresearch on monotowns with the theoretical and empirical research on thehierarchical urban systems; and 3) to run the empirical analysis of the effectsof market transition on the changes occurring in monotowns in relation to theirpopulation size, specialization of economic activity and economic performanceof urban systems.

  • Eurasian Economic Union: Benefits and Costs of Membership

    2019  

     View Summary

    The project aimedat analysing the effects of participation in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU)on the economies of five member-states: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan,Kyrgyzstan and Russia. Although the economicsignificance of Europe for Russia by far outweighs that of Eurasia, theimportance of Eurasia has been reconceptualised in Russian official rhetoric inpost-2014 geopolitical and economic situation. Contrarywise, having gainedeconomic vigour and adopted a multi-vector stance in foreign policy, Kazakhstanhas activated the pursuance of geographic diversification. Similarly, has beenevolving the attitude towards the Eurasian integration of other EAEU member-states,with Russia, nevertheless, remaining their primary economic partner. Since theEAEU is a young integration, a solid quantitative exercise is difficult.Therefore, based upon the review of relevant theoretical and empirical accountson economic integration, the study examined the effects of the EAEU on theintegrated economies, analysing them upon an original set of metrics in severalrealms: intra-EAEU trade, investment, labour mobility and economic andinstitutional convergence. Depending on the direction of the identifiedimpacts, the impacts were provisionally coined the "benefits” and the“costs” of membership.    

  • Energy, Growth and Development in post-Soviet Economies.

    2018  

     View Summary

    The project investigated various aspectsof energy - economic performance nexus. Drawing upon theoretical frameworks ofenergy resource endowment, institutions, energy transitions and economicgrowth, this research project empirically examined the interactions betweenfossil fuels and economic performance in the post-Soviet economies. The projectwas extended to include preliminary study on the role of renewable energy inCentral Asian economies.      Theproject’s principal outcomes are:(a) development of an originalinterdisciplinary approach for the case of post-Soviet economies;(b) examination of the impacts of energyendowment on economic performance;  (c) study of the effects of institutions’quality on economic outcomes;(d) comparative analysis of Eurasianenergy integration vis-à-vis Energy Union of the EU; and(e) analysis of renewable energydevelopment in Central Asian economies.

  • Energy, Growth and Development in post-Soviet Economies. Incorporating Perspectives from Institutional Theory and Comparative Economic Studies.

    2018  

     View Summary

    Drawing upon theoretical frameworks of energy resourceendowment, institutions and economic growth, this research project empiricallyexamined economic performance of hydrocarbons-rich post-Soviet economies withstrong states. Sharing institutional characteristics of coordinated marketeconomies, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan are similar in thatthey fail to grow steadily and reveal problems with the inclusiveness ofdevelopment.The principal research question of this project was:Is it resource curse or institutional curse that determines the performance offossil fuels-rich economies with strong state? To answer this question, theproject checked relationships between economic growth and development (EGD) andenergy resource (oil and natural gas) endowment, EGD and institutions for asample of post-Soviet economies. Panel data for 1991-2017 were composed based upon open databases of the World Bank, United Nations Comtrade,World Economic Forum, Natural Resource Governance Institution, EurasianDevelopment Bank, Asian Development Bank, Transparency International (CPI), as well as statistical portals of the respectivecountries and other sources (such as state-owned energy companies).

  • Curse or Blessing? Energy Resources for Economic Growth and Development in post-Soviet Countries

    2017  

     View Summary

    Each group of economies - having and not havingenergy resources – has its pattern of institutional parameters(the rule of law, governance efficiency, etc.). Resource-rich economies tend tounderperform in terms of the quality of institutions as they create regulationscentred on the extraction of rent. The study proved that energy resources can be anadditional supportive factor for economic dynamism provided the globalcommodity markets and external environment are favourable. Yet, a direct relationshipbetween the quality of domestic institutional factors and the sustainability ofeconomic growth and development is confirmed. An important finding is that sinceenergy specialisation determines an export-oriented pattern of a nationaleconomy, it is not only the domestic institutional environment that matters,but the compatibility of institutional environments of the partners. Provisionsfor energy trade and investment are being increasingly incorporated within the supranationaland regional institutional settings, like energy unions or common energymarkets. The economies with monopolised national energy systems, restrictionsin trade and prohibitive regulatory arrangements for investment face growingbarriers in reaching out to their traditional customers. Such reality is likelyto influence the deregulation course in energy exporting economies.
