Since 1945, the United States has been the most frequent user of economic sanctions, accounting for just about 50% of all sanctions threats and impositions. Recently, the U.S. employed financial sanctions against Iran, Venezuela, and Russia in response to its invasion of Ukraine. Can economic sanctions work? Please join Dr. Navin Bapat, the Dowd professor in political science and the Chair of the Curriculum of Peace, War, and Defense, for a discussion of economic sanctions and their effectiveness in foreign policy.

Sponsored by the UNC Russian Flagship Program, the Women in National Security Group, and the Curriculum of Peace, War, and Defense.
