When:Mo 09-05-2022 14:00 - 15:30
Where:Online (see link below)

Roundtable discussion: Will higher energy cost be enough to solve the Ukrainian crisis?

What are the main impacts that sanctions are having? What are the costs that the international community is asked to bear? And what is the effectiveness of sanctions?

Experts of sanctions from the University of Groningen will offer their insights on one of the most serious challenges to international security in the last decades.

Join us in the discussion on the day of Europe and on the day when Russia has announced the military operation will end to draw conclusions on the conflict and on sanctions.

Sanctions have been among the main instruments used to address the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The United States and the European Union have led global efforts to curb the economy of Russia with the view to constrain the military capacities of Russia and to pressure the government to favour a negotiated solution to the conflict.
