The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) convened a workshop to explore connections between oil trade and political relations. To accomplish this objective, the workshop brought together a diverse set of scholars and practitioners with backgrounds in economics, international relations, security, and public policy to focus on case studies that were selected to provide insight into important potential relationships between oil markets and international relations. Several participants were asked to prepare simple memos, which are available below. The memos are not CFR publications, and are solely the responsibility of their authors. They are shared here so that others can learn from them.
This workshop was made possible by the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
