The Impact of Russian Sanctions

Comparative Politics Seminar
Event Format

Please note that the date and time of this event has changed.

Russia is facing an arsenal of sanctions by the U.S. and European countries, from getting kicked out of SWIFT to sanctions targeting both individuals and banks (even the Central Bank of Russia). What’s the difference between these instruments and how could they individually and collectively affect the Russian economy? What are the goals of these sanctions, and are those goals achievable?
