On June 23 and 24, twenty five experts met at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government under the auspices of the Geopolitics of Energy Project at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. The group, which included experts from academia, the financial sector, government, and the energy industry, spent an evening and the following full day discussing and debating the possible energy implications of a nuclear deal between the P5+1 and Iran. Each individual brought a different perspective and expertise—from those focused on the state of the Iranian oil sector to those specializing in U.S. sanctions. The deliberations were held behind closed doors and on the basis of Chatham House rules. The Geopolitics of Energy Project thanks the Middle East Security Project, the Iran Project, and the Middle East Initiative for providing additional resources to hold this workshop.
