Titre Ouvrage:Lost in Regulation: The EU and Nord Stream 2
Édition:Policy perspectives, vol. 5/5, November
While geopolitical considerations still influence the public debate about Nord Stream 2, in the EU, the topic has shifted to a rather technical discussion of energy market regulation. The European Commission’s management of political expectations will leave opponents of the project frustrated. The heated debate about Nord Stream 2 has shifted from a geopolitical focus towards a question of the applicable regulatory framework In the EU’s political processes,the question is no longer whether the building of the pipeline should be stopped, but how it will be operated after construction In its search for a new specific regulatory framework to cover the pipeline,the Commission has got lost in legal inconsistencies.
