The Center on Global Energy Policy and the Harriman Institute hosted a public panel discussion of the U.S. and European sanctions campaign against Russia in response to its intervention in Ukraine, featuring:
Simond de Galbert, Visiting Fellow, Europe Program, Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS);
Richard Nephew, Fellow and Program Director, Economic Statecraft, Sanctions and Energy Markets, Center on Global Energy Policy.
The event will be moderated by Alex Cooley, Director of the Harriman Institute at Columbia University and Professor of Political Science at Barnard College.
Sanctions have been employed in order to persuade Russia both to halt its activities in Ukraine and to prompt a political settlement of the issues that led to the crisis that began in 2013. However, reports continue to emerge that Russia is arming and supporting insurgents in Ukraine while the process toward a political resolution has come to a halt. This event will will look at the role of sanctions, including whether they can contribute to a solution to the crisis in Ukraine. Should they be expanded? What, if any, have been their unintended consequences? And under what circumstances should they be relieved? Registration is required. This event is open to press. It will also be livestreamed at: energypolicy.columbia.edu/watch
