Attend the entire workshop or join for single sessions:

Join us for a stimulating workshop on the economic and political impact of the sanctions imposed on Russia. As the war in Ukraine persists into 2024 and Russia's economy remains relatively resilient, the measures imposed since 2014 might appear to be ineffective. The workshop features presentations exploring the effects of the 2014 and 2022 sanctions and unveil the substantial — sometimes unintended — consequences of the sanctions. Aside from the academic presentations, experts and policymakers discuss the nuanced ways sanctions have influenced Russia's economic and political landscape, and possible strategies to enhance the effectiveness of future sanctions regimes.

Please register to attend the workshop in person or online. Note that we have limited capacity on site and may not be able to admit all participants interested in joining in person.
