  2. About Justin Dargin Justin Dargin is a Research Fellow with The Dubai Initiative and a Fulbright Scholar of the Middle East. Justin Dargin is a specialist in International Law and Energy Law, and a prolific author on energy affairs. He specializes in carbon trading, the global oil and gas market, the legal framework surrounding the Gulf energy sector, and Middle Eastern geopolitics. Justin has spent long periods of time living and traveling in the Gulf and North Africa. Before coming to Harvard, he worked at Owens Corning Global Headquarters in the international legal department, as an integral part of the compliance team for adherence to the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and in structuring relations with its Saudi Arabian and South African joint ventures. Justin also worked in the legal department at the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC),  and was a researcher at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, where he pioneered the first major substantive work on transnational gas trade in the form of the Dolphin Project.

  3. Justin Dargin as Author:- He is the author of numerous publications, including, Desert Dreams: The Quest for Arab Integration from the Arab Revolt to the GCC (forthcoming fall 2010). Dargin has frequently appeared in major media outlets as an expert on Middle Eastern geopolitics, and his work on the Middle Eastern natural gas sector has been quoted and interviewed regularly in international and regional media such as RT (TV Network), the International Herald Tribune, the Economist, the Associated Press, the Middle East Economic Digest and the Middle East Economic Survey.

  4. At Work & Study in Past:- When Dargin worked at OPEC, one of his jobs was advising the senior staff as to the implications of several multilateral initiatives with the WTO and UN. He also worked at a Fortune 500 firm, where he structured joint ventures in emerging markets. While at OPEC, he played a role behind the accession of Angola as the organization's twelfth member, a short period after that country's disastrous civil war ended. Dargin was also a researcher at the Oxford Institute of Energy Studies in Oxford, U.K. Currently, Dargin sits on the board of directors of the International Energy Foundation, on the review committee for Fulbright Scholars and is the Senior Advisor to the European Geopolitical Forum (EGF) on EU-Gulf Energy Relations.

  5. Back Ground:- Justin Dargin's contribution to Gulf energy research began while studying in Oxford under Professor Jonathan Stern, a leading British expert on natural gas policy. Under Stern, Dargin wrote the first study of intra-Gulf natural gas trading in the gulf through his groundbreaking work on the Dolphin Project, a natural gas pipeline from Qatar to the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Justin Dargin was one of the first experts to correctly predict the natural gas crisis and energy shortage that the Gulf countries experienced as a result of their massive industrialization from between 2002-2008. His research in this field is part a broader understanding of how energy resources contribute to industrialization, and the link between the dual pricing of natural gas resources and economic modernization. Justin Dargin began the first systematic research into the development of a potential Gulf carbon trading platform. Justin Dargin is also heavily involved in philanthropic work, and leveraged his ideas on the nexus between energy and development through his nongovernmental energy developmental organization founded to combat poverty and post-earthquake reconstruction in Haiti through building up its renewable energy infrastructure.
