Mechanisms and Limitations of Coordination of Energy and Environmental Policy of the USA and Canada in Terms of NAFTA
This work analyzes achievements and restrictions of energy partnership and environment-oriented cooperation of Canada and the USA within the world’s largest free-trade zone. Parallelisms and differences in the evolution of energy security, energy consumption, energy politics and environmental regulation in both countries before and after NAFTA formation are being unveiled. Special attention is paid to contradictions that emerged between economy interests of Canada as energy resource exporter and US focus on global leadership in the sphere of ecology and clean energy. This text attempts to verify possible tensions inside NAFTA in geoeconomic context.
