International economic sanctions have made the headlines during the past year as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Hence, we thought it’d be wise to host a webinar delving deeper into the use of this policy tool and what is required from businesses to comply with its many stipulations.

So, join us on Wednesday, September 21st at 14:00 BST to learn all about international economic sanctions, their purpose, how they work, their impact on businesses, and a whole lot more.

Some of the questions to be tackled by our panellists include:

  • What are international economic sanctions?
  • What are the different types of economic sanctions?
  • When are they applied or used? By whom?
  • What are their main objectives?
  • Generally speaking, how do they work?
  • How effective are sanctions in delivering results?
  • Are there any glaring disadvantages to the application of sanctions?
  • How do they impact firms doing business with sanctioned countries or entities?
  • How should firms go about complying with the stipulations posed by a set of sanctions? Are there any solutions out there that facilitate this process?
  • And plenty more!

Book your spot below and come loaded with any questions you might have for our panellists.

Hope to see you there!
