Political risk in the natural resource sector

Dr Laura James, our Senior Middle East Analyst, is joining a panel hosted by Willis Towers Watson to discuss the political risks facing the natural resource sector after COVID-19, including shifts in Middle Eastern politics, achieving a ‘sustainable recovery,’ strategic competition between Chinese and Western companies, and the political risk aftershocks of the pandemic.

Dr Laura James is being joined by Tomasz Nadrowski, Portfolio Manager, Anholt Services and David Nelson, Executive Director of the Climate Policy Initiative to answer:

  • How will these political risk trends reshape the industry in 2021 and beyond
  • How can leading natural resource companies respond?

The webinar is being held on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 and will coincide with the launch of their new research report on the same subject, presenting insights from a panel of leading external affairs and risk management executives in the sector.
