Iran at a Crossroads: Assessing the Changing Geopolitical and Energy Landscape
How is the (geo)political landscape in Iran changing and what are the effects for energy?
The seminar will be devoted to assessing the prospects for signing a nuclear deal between Iran and the Big Six and assessing its possible domestic and international political, geopolitical and economic implications and changing energy landscape in the region. Iran can become an important regional gas exporter either to the EU or China or both. Active utilization of Caspian energy resources by Iran will likely have repercussions for other regional energy exporters. Perspectives on these and other important post-deal scenarios will be presented by speakers discussing both the implications for Iran and for other important players such as the EU, Russia and Central Asia."
