Navin A. Bapat, Associate Professor of Political Science

Policymakers frequently argue that economic sanctions are ineffective foreign policy instruments. However, recent analyses suggest that sanctions may be far more useful than originally thought, particularly if we examine sanctions threats in addition to actual impositions. Navin Bapat will present some of the major findings from sanctions research in the last decade, and highlight the conditions under which sanctions are more likely to accomplish American foreign policy goals.
