Professor Robert Rogowsky
Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey and Georgetown University
The Global Economic Impact of the Invasion of Ukraine
While the world’s main focus since the February 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine has been the tragic human toll and the destruction of Ukrainian territory, the war is also causing a major disruption of global economies. Professor Robert Rogowsky will discuss the ripple economic effects of the invasion, including the impact on global supply chains, cost increases, product shortages, and catastrophic food shortages. He will also discuss how the international community is addressing these challenges.
Robert Rogowsky is a professor in the International Trade Program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. He also teaches as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service and McCourt School of Public Policy. He is the president of the Institute for Trade and Commercial Diplomacy. Dr. Rogowsky spent nearly two decades at the US International Trade Commission, where he served as chief economist from 1995 to 1999, and as director of operations from 1991 to 2010. On many occasions, he has testified before Congress on matters involving international trade and has published widely on the topics of international trade, competition policy, and regulation.
