Seminar Series on the US Foreign Policy | Russia-Ukraine Sanctions: Assessing Impact and Drawing Lessons
Bruce W. Jentleson (Duke University). Chair: Jeffrey Michaels (IBEI)
Available in video:
Economic sanctions are a major part of the US and EU response to the Russia-Ukraine war. Threats of economic sanctions prior to 24 February failed to deter Russia’s invasion, whilst the imposition of sanctions following the start of the war have thus far shown no signs of helping to end it. Based on the research gathered for a forthcoming book on sanctions policy (Sanctions: What Everyone Needs to Know) as well as his experience working on US sanctions policy on China in the early 1990s and on Iran in 2009-2011, Professor Jentleson will offer an assessment of the role of sanctions as part of the international response to the ongoing war and the likely impact they will have in the future.
