Professor Abdelal is an expert on globalization, geopolitics, and political economy. Widely published, he has written about the global financial system, the international politics of post-Soviet Eurasia, the influence of multinational firms on world politics, and the transformation of energy markets in Europe and Eurasia. He is currently at work on two projects. One project, The Fragile State of the World, explores the interrelated challenges that undermined the first era of globalization, circa 1870-1914, and that threaten to destroy the current age of global capitalism. The second project, The Profits of Power, explores the geopolitics of energy in Europe and Eurasia.
