Posted by Enough Team on December 13, 2018

On December 13, 2018, The Sentry’s Director of Policy and Analysis, Joshua White, was on a panel examining the impact of the Global Magnitsky sanctions, opportunities to improve implementation, and how the sanctions fit within financial sector approaches to human rights and corruption. The event, ‘Targeted Sanctions on Human Rights Abusers and Kleptocracies: Lessons Learned and Opportunities from the Global Magnitsky Sanctions’, was hosted by the Human Rights Initiative at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and featured reflections from U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), the author of the Global Magnitsky Act.

U.S. Senator Ben Cardin served as the event’s keynote speaker, and the panel featured Robert Berschinski, Senior Vice President Policy at Human Rights First, Robert Peri, Director of US Sanctions at Citibank, Joshua White, Director of Policy and Analysis at The Sentry, and Andrea Prasow, Deputy Washington Director, Human Rights Watch.
