The New Future of Iraq: Global and regional political development amidst monumen

 

 

 

 

A free Public Lecture by Carter Page hosted by Durham Energy Institute and Global Policy Institute. In the face of perennial and seemingly insurmountable obstacles, the continued evolution of energy markets in Iraq stands at the intersection of many of the principal international relations challenges of our era.

With the turmoil of sectarian violence, market volatility and the threat of terrorism across the country today, the political economy of oil has long been understood as a traditional source of tension. During the course of the past quarter-century, colossal stakes and competing interests have helped to catalyse the related conflicts which resulted. Balancing essential considerations in the country and worldwide, this lecture will consider alternative frameworks for negotiation and compromise based on recent experience in Iraq and throughout the Middle East.

Carter W. Page is Founder and Managing Partner of Global Energy Capital LLC, a New York-based financial institution and investment fund focused on energy investments in developing markets. He is the former Chief Operating Officer of the Energy & Power Investment Banking Group at Merrill Lynch and Deputy Branch Manager of the representative office in Moscow.

Carter is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, where he was previously an International Affairs Fellow and Co-Director of the Council’s study group on Caspian Sea energy development. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Center for Global Affairs at New York University and a Fellow at the Center for National Policy in Washington.

Carter is a Distinguished Graduate of the US Naval Academy where he was a Trident Scholar. He holds an MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business and a PhD from the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies.

He is also a regular contributor to the Global Policy Journal blog.
