Beyond Carrots, Better Sticks: Measuring and Improving the Effectiveness of Sanctions in Africa
October 31, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Human Rights Initiative at CSIS is hosting an off-the-record roundtable discussion with sanctions experts from the public and private sectors to discuss the effectiveness of sanctions in the African context. Sanctions have been used for decades by the international community as a response to conflict and political crises in Sub-Saharan Africa, but their effectiveness as a policy tool is not clear. The discussion will be informed by findings in The Sentry’s new report, “Beyond Carrots, Better Sticks: Measuring and Improving the Effectiveness of Sanctions in Africa.”
In a small-group setting, participants will discuss:
- How sanctions should be used as a tool of foreign policy in the region.
- The future of sanctions implementation to address crises on the continent.
- Ideas for addressing the challenges presented in the implementation of Africa-focused sanctions programs administered by the United States, United Nations, and European Union.
Hilary Mossberg, AML/CFT Advisor for Africa for The Sentry and author of the report, will be one of the speakers at the event.
