The Effectiveness of Sanctions as a Foreign Policy Instrument [London, England]

Past Event

October 14, 2015

9:00 am - 10:00 am

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

The conversation was chaired by Maya Lester, Barrister, Brick Court Chambers, and featured:

  • 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
