How Sanctions Impact the Global Economy
Seattle, WA, USA
World Affairs Council of Seattle
Sanctions have become an important tool of modern statecraft. The United States is currently sanctioning dozens of countries—from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe—to promote its foreign policy objectives. In the UN Security Council, there are currently 15 ongoing sanctions regimes. Economic sanctions are extensive – but are they effective? And in an interconnected global economy, can their impacts be limited to the intended targets or do they necessarily disrupt trade and financial flows? Join us on June 15 for a virtual conversation with leading sanctions expert Justyna Gudzowska as we explore if and when sanctions work and who ultimately bears the cost of proliferating sanctions. Instructions on how to join this virtual meeting will be sent the day before the program.
