The Global Economic Consequences of the Russia-Ukraine War

calendarclock - (BST)

A panel of leading economists discuss the global reverberations of the Russia-Ukraine war.

Beyond the suffering and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, the global economy is feeling the effects of slower growth and higher inflation as a result of the Russian invasion.

This webinar will consider these global economic trends and their implications.

The conversation will be moderated by The Rt Hon Sir Malcolm Rifkind KCMG KC, RUSI Distinguished Fellow and former UK Foreign Secretary.
