Fletcher Eurasia Club Lunch Seminar: Amy Myers Jaffe on the Energy Crisis in Europe

November 1 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

Please join the Fletcher Eurasia Club for a lunch seminar with Professor Amy Myers Jaffe. She will discuss rising energy prices, Russia’s dwindling natural gas supply to Europe, the EU’s looming embargo on Russian oil, and the emerging energy crisis in Europe. We encourage you to read her recent articles on energy conflicts between Russia and Europe, Gazprom, and how banning Russian oil might work.

Members of the wider Tufts community are also welcome to attend. Lunch will be served. Amy Myers Jaffe is Research Professor and Managing Director of the Climate Policy Lab.
