This year, the NRGI conference focused on the implications of falling commodity prices, bringing together policy makers, practitioners, academics and other leading experts (including many from developing countries) to discuss the salient policy and governance challenges and the latest analysis on these issues. The conference provided a forum for highly interactive debate, showcasing new thinking, policy experience and emerging practice.

Carnegie’s Carole Nakhle initiated the talk with a discussion on the oil price’s impact on the bargaining power between host governments and investors at the negotiating table.

This conference was originally published by the Natural Resource Governance Institute and was hosted at the University of Oxford’s St. Catherine’s College in partnership with OxCarre​.
