What are the implications for the oil and gas industry and the energy system as a whole during this transition? Join the Belfer Center at Harvard University for this Energy Policy Seminar featuring Donald Paul.

Since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, many have been skeptical about the possibility of a diplomatic resolution to the conflict, despite the strong incentives to reach a peace agreement.
