ITG/SuSo lunch webinar: International sanctions against Russia

When:Th 07-04-2022 13:00 - 14:00
Where:Live stream

Together with our research group Illicit Trade we are organizing a webinar on Thursday 7 April 2022 entitled: 'International sanctions against Russia'. Viktor Szép discusses the effects of the sanctions against Russia.

Sanctions have become a critical pillar of transatlantic policy towards Russia. In 2014, they were proposed to be temporary measures but sanctions have proved to be an expression of a more antagonistic relationship between the West and Russia. Indeed, recent Russian actions have prompted a remarkable coordination between the European Union and the United States. Transatlantic coordination is beyond expectations which is manifested in the sheer number and types of sanctions that are now imposed against Russia. The presentation hopes to contribute to the ongoing discussions on sanctions and to a better understanding of the potentials and limits of sanctions.

When: Thursday 7 April 2022

Time: 13.00 - 14.00 hrs.
