The Effectiveness of Sanctions as a Foreign Policy Instrument

RSVP Here.

Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy and Chatham House for a panel conversation on the effectiveness of sanctions as a foreign policy instrument. This special event will take place in London, England from 1:00-2:00 pm (GMT+1). Our expert panel will first consider weather the case can be made that international sanctions achieved their aims in Iran. The discussion will then be broadened to consider historic examples of sanctions' success and failures juxtaposed against contemporary sanctions schemes in Venezuela, Russia, Zimbabwe and Cuba.

The conversation will be chaired by Maya Lester, Barrister, Brick Court Chambers, and feature:

  • Richard Nephew, Program Director, Economic Statecraft, Sanctions and Energy Markets, Center on Global Energy Policy
  • Baroness Neville-Jones, former Chair of the British Joint Intelligence Committee (1993-94) and Minister of State for Security and Counterterrorism (2010-11)
  • Dr. Alex Vines, Research Director, Area Studies and International Law, and Head, Africa Programme, Chatham House

Registration is required for in-person attendance.

A podcast of this event (in addition to other past Center events) will be available ~3 to 5 days after the date of the event through iTunes or via our website.
