Conference Opening: Geopolitical dialogue

Monday, March 11

10:30 am - 11:15 am

Geopolitical hot spots around the world could threaten regional and even global stability, with potentially far-reaching consequences for energy markets. How are US concerns over Russian engagement in US elections affecting American international diplomacy? Given tensions across Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Yemen—and links to the United States and Russia—is there any scenario for stability in the Middle East? How do tensions among great powers exacerbate the risk of crises unraveling?
