Sanctions In The Trump Era – One Year In
March 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am
Please join the Atlantic Council’s Economic Sanctions Initiative for a conference on how the United States can best use sanctions as a policy tool.Economic sanctions continue to be a centerpiece of the United States’ foreign policy toolkit under the Trump Administration, as CAATSA, Russia-specific sanctions, new US and UN Security Council sanctions against North Korea, and the JCPOA with Iran demonstrate. Effective when well used and coordinated, sanctions also can be overused and oversold. Our conference is intended to review the development, implementation, and enforcement of sanctions during the last year, and to build consensus around sanctions policy going forward. Stay tuned for more details on additional speakers. Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Ms. Sigal Mandelker will deliver keynote remarks at the event.
