OPEC and the Global Energy Order: From its Origins to the Present Time


WHEN April 18-20, 2017
9 AM - 5 PM WHERE Abu Dhabi WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

This conference explores the cooperation among the world’s largest oil exporters, their relations to non-OPEC countries, to international oil companies and to key consuming countries. It sheds light on the role the organization has played in the international history of the 20th century, as well as on the challenges it’s facing with the rise of climate change debate and the pressures to move toward a less carbon-dependent economy. OPEC being the most sophisticated and successful international organization of raw materials producers from the Global South, its success and failures can also speak in general to the prospect of international cooperation on raw materials and natural resources, and contribute to a better understanding of the key issues at stake both for producers and consumers.
