QU’s Centre for Law and Development researcher publishes major book ‘International Energy Agency’

2021-04-04 00:00:00.0

A new book entitled “International Energy Agency” was recently published by Wolters Kluwer as part of its International Encyclopedia of Laws: Intergovernmental Organizations.
Dr. Imad Antoine Ibrahim who is currently a Research Assistant at the Center for Law & Development, at the College of Law of Qatar University led the project as Editor and lead Author. Many global experts in the energy field contributed to the book from various institutions.
The book responds to a shortage in the literature when it comes to a holistic description of the International Energy Agency (IEA) since its inception. Indeed, despite the existence of several reports and articles on the topic, the contributors noticed a clear shortage of comprehensive materials on the Agency.
It is in this context that this monograph was drafted where the contributors attempted to provide a holistic approach to various developments that occurred since the creation of the IEA while addressing different aspects. These aspects are related to history; institutional framework; IEA’s mission; IEA’s activities; finance; data and publication and finally relations with other organizations. Attempting to describe all these aspects in one book was very challenging given the existence of different information from various sources where the input and analysis of each contributor was crucial.
Dr. Imad Antoine Ibrahim said: “This book was needed given the important role of the IEA in global energy governance and given the emergence of new energy agencies that may benefit from the experience and expertise of the IEA such as the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)”.
Dr. Jon Truby, the Director of the Center for Law & Development of the College of Law of Qatar University highlighted the importance of this book for the creation of dialogue between Qatar University and international organizations such as the IEA in various fields. The Center for Law & Development publishes high impact academic and practice-based texts in legal subjects related to Qatar’s National Vision and the Qatar University Research Roadmap.
The team members of the center aim at developing further collaborations with various institutions such as the IEA for research purposes but also for practical matters such as engaging with policymakers in Qatar in various fields including energy governance at the national, regional and international level.
