The Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies presents:
Putin’s War on Ukraine: The Costs of Invasion
Julia Friedlander, C. Boyden Gray Senior Fellow and Director, Economic Statecraft Initiative, GeoEconomics Center, The Atlantic Council; former senior policy advisor for Europe, U.S. Department of the Treasury
Richard Nephew, Program Director, Center on Global Energy Policy; former Principal Deputy Coordinator for Sanctions Policy, U.S. Department of State
Moderated by Allison Carnegie, Associate Professor of Political Science; International Political Economy Expert
In response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, the international community levied and implemented unprecedented sanctions against Russia, effectively cutting off a major economy from the global financial system. The Saltzman Institute will convene an expert panel to break down the intentions behind these sanctions, what impact they are likely to have on Russia, Putin, EU members, and what implications they have for wider international community. As sanctions increasingly become the coercive tool of choice for the US, the panel will help shed light on what these sanctions mean for the future of the war, and what the war can tell us about the future of economic statecraft.
This event will take place virtually on Zoom
