Agnia Grigas: Demanded Expert on Eastern Europe

Agnia Grigas is an author, scholar, and expert on energy and security policy. Her interest in geopolitical developments of Eurasia started in college and developed into expertise early during her career in the private sector and throughout doctoral studies. Her authored books, professional experience, and frequent media contributions have helped to build the reputation as an opinion leader in this field.

According to her valued opinion, as the US gets its bearings about its newfound position, we can expect competition for European and Asian energy markets to intensify. While traditional energy powers, such as Russia and European energy importers, are set to benefit from a more competitive, flexible, and liquid market. More about it.
