The Impact of the Russian Invasion on the Ukrainian, Russian, and Global Economies: A Conversation Revisited
Monday, July 18, 2022
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. EDT
Location: Online (4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Brussels)

In March 2022, leading economists and regional experts Sergei Guriev and Tymofiy Mylovanov discussed the economic implications (new window) of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, launched on February 24, 2022. Their highly illuminating discussion considered the complexities of supply chains, global food security, the two countries’ economic futures, and more. Four months later, with the economic toll on the world’s economies and the humanitarian cost imposed on Ukraine and the surrounding regions continuing to grow, we reunite these two experts to share their views of the current status of this crisis. Alejandro Werner, founding director of the Georgetown Americas Institute, will moderate the conversation.

The Ukrainian Refugee Crisis
Tuesday, April 26, 2022
11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. EDT
Location: Online (5:00 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. CEST)

The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the associated conflict has resulted in a major exodus from the country as individuals seeking safety attempt to escape the horrors of war. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has recently estimated that in excess of four million Ukrainians have left their country (with over seven million internally displaced), resulting in an extraordinary crisis with major humanitarian and economic implications. This webinar will feature four leading economists discussing the impacts of this ongoing refugee crisis and its implications for Ukraine and the rest of Europe.
