Turning the Page: Reintegrating States After Sanctions


International Affairs Building 1501


November 30, 2016 10:30AM to 12:00PM

More Information

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a panel discussion on post-sanctioned jurisdiction. The imposition of sanctions of all types is a prevalent part of international statecraft, particularly in areas where military force is too dangerous and quiet diplomacy is insufficient. Much research has gone into how to impose sanctions but comparatively little has gone into the most crucial next step: removing sanctions and ensuring that states, in particular, feel the benefits of having made whatever concessions were necessary to turn off the sanctions pressure. This panel will examine the decision to remove sanctions against Myanmar, Cuba, and Iran, and explore the ways in which sanctions removal has been successful as well as unsuccessful. The panel will also offer views on how governments, in particular, can better manage the removal of sanctions for maximum political effect.

Distinguished experts joining us will be:

Elizabeth Rosenberg, Senior Fellow and Director of the Energy, Economics and Security Program at the Center for a New American Security 

Peter Harrell, Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Center for a New American Security

Peter Kucik, Principal at the Inle Advisory Group

Richard Nephew, Program Director, Economic Statecraft, Sanctions and Energy Markets, Center on Global Energy Policy
