My Era-studies and the Key Research-Interests and Focus

Era-studies: 

The Middle East, Central and East-Asia, and the European Union

Key research interests

  • Political economy of Energy Security [with focuses on EU and China]
  • Internationalisation and Transnationalistion of Chinese National Oil Companies
  • Geopolitical-economy of the Middle East, Central-, and East Asia
  • Persistence and nature of the authoritarian regimes in the Middle East, Central and East Asia
  • Origins, development and impacts of politicized Islam in the Middle East and Central Eurasia
  • The European Union Energy security and its geopolitical economic reflections

Overview of the research activities and projects of Amineh since 1998

Amineh's research is generally focused on comparative geo-political economics and comparative political studies of Central,- and East Asia, the Middle East countries, and the European Union (in the case of EU specifically focused on energy research). 
Since 1998, Amineh’s research has developed in four phases:

[1] From 1998-2005, 

in the context of several research projects, my main focus was the study of the post-Cold War geo-political economy, International Relations and states and societies of the former Soviet republics of Central-Eurasia, more in particular the study of the geopolitical economy of conflict and cooperation between major state-powers, as well as competition among International Oil Companies, for the access and control of oil and gas resources in the Central-Eurasian region.

The results of his researches were published in four peer-reviewed books (of which two monographs), and 13 peer-review articles. The following research institutes were involved in these activities: The Clingendael International Energy Program (CIPE), Clingendael Institute of International relations, The Hague, The International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) of Leiden University, The Middle East Technical University of Ankara, Turkey, the Central Asian Studies Department of the School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London, UK, The Institute of Eurasian and Russian Studies of Carleton University, Canada, The Institute of Slavic, East Europe and Eurasian Studies of Berkeley, University of California,  USA, The University of Birmingham, The the World Bank Office in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, The Institute of Asia Pacific Studies of Waseda University in Tokyo, The Department of Political Science of the University of Amsterdam and the Institute of Social Studies in The Hague.

[2] Between 2005 and 2007

I started a new research program called the Greater Middle East in Global Politics: Social Science Perspective on the Changing Geography of the World Politics. The main aim of this research was to study factors (both external as well as domestic and regional) that might explain (i) the persistence of authoritarian regimes, (ii) the failure and/or fragmented nation-state-building, development, and democratic transitions which cause among other the rise and activities of powerful Islamic radical movements with their transnational networks and participants. These developments caused permanent chronic developmental crises and wars between and within states within and between inter- connected societies of the Greater Middle East (the Greater Middle East which included Central Eurasia).

In this project, I worked with the following research Centers and Universities: The Department of Politics and International Relations of the Open University of the UK, The Institute of Eurasian and Russian Studies of Carleton University in Canada, the Institute of Political Science and IR of the University of Algiers, The Jerusalem Van Leer Institute in Israel, the Clingendael International Energy Programme of the Clingendael Institute of International relations, The Hague, the Department of Political Science of the University of Amsterdam, the South Asia Studies Centre of the University of Rajasthan in Jaipur India, the Center for International and Regional Studies of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, Qatar, The Marshall Centre in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, the Mills College of Oakland California, the International Studies Program of the University of Regina in Canada, the School of Oriental and African studies of the University of London, the Department of Economics of the University of Adelaide in Australia, the Institute of History of Academic and Social Sciences in Uzbekistan and the School of Management Euromed in Marseille, France.

[3] From 2007 till September 2011.

In 2006, I set-up a research program called the Energy Programme Asia (EPA) at the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) of Leiden University. The objectives of EPA-IIAS were twofold; it aimed to study (i) Geopolitical economy of energy supply security, (ii) Energy efficiency, alternative energy resources and sustainable development for China and the European Union.

In the context of EPA, between 2007 and 2011, Amineh designed and managed a research program titled the ‘Domestic and Geopolitical Challenges to Energy Security for China and the EU’. This joint research program was a collaboration between the Energy Program Asia and the  Institute of Asian and African Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and totaled 13 scholars and 8 Europe, Canada, Dutch, and Chinese research Centers and Universities. The research program was granted by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Social Sciences (KNAW), CASS and IIAS.

The results of this program were published in two edited peer-reviewed volumes and 26 research papers (2010, 2012).

[4] The fourth phase: 2013 to 2017.

Amineh’s current project is a joint research program titled the “Transnationalization of China’s Oil Industry […]”. This joint comparative research project analyses China’s increasing involvement with governments, local institutions and local stakeholders in the energy sectors of a number of resource-rich countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America (notably Sudan, Ghana, Saudi-Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Venezuela, and Brazil).

The project seeks to determine patterns of interaction between China’s National Institutions and Companies, their relationship with foreign investment projects, and the extent to which they are embedded in the local economies of their host countries. China’s huge demand for resources and its novel, professedly non-political approach to investment (including tied aid, loans, and trading credits) sets it apart from European international practices. The effects of trade and investments in resource-rich economies and societies, many of which are managed by China’s state-owned oil companies, require further analysis of transactions, flows of capital, employment, income-generation and other important variables. The main hypothesis is that there exists a growing symbiosis between enterprises and local institutions and China’s company and government behavior, differing significantly from country to country. The main reason for this is the differing institutional context, and place – and time-specific economic opportunities for investment and involvement. Analysis of these investments and running operations can provide important insights into the local effects of bilateral and global energy cooperation, and the learning curves of international and local oil companies.

The joint research program is a cooperation between the Institute of West Asian and African Studies IWAAS-CASS of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and the Energy Program Asia of IIAS. The joint research program is granted by the Royal Netherlands Academy for Arts and Sciences (KNAW), the Chinese Academy of Social Science (CASS) and IIAS of Leiden University.

The core team entails 12 principal researchers, who will present individual studies on various aspects surrounding different countries as case-studies. The interdisciplinary research project is managed by Amineh (the Energy Program Asia-IIAS/UvA) and Prof. Yang Guang (Institute of West Asian and African Studies - CASS) in cooperation with the following Chinese/CASS and Dutch research centers and universities: the Institute of Industrial Economy-CASS (IIE), the Institute of Latin American Studies-CASS (ILAS), the Institute of Russian, East European & Central Asian Studies-CASS (IREECAS), the Centre for Latin American Studies/CEDLA, the Department of Politics and Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology of the University of Amsterdam, the Institute for Environmental Studies of VU Free University Amsterdam and the International Institute for Asian Studies Leiden University.

The results of the first part of the research were published in late 2014 in Special Issues, (2014) No. 5 & 6, pp. 481-831, of the Journal Perspective on Global Development and Technology, under the title‘The Transnationalization of  Chinese National Oil Companies and the European Union Energy Security’. Guest editors and contributors Mehdi P. Amineh (AISSR, UvA) and Yang Guang (IWAAS-CASS).
