The Changing Sanctions Landscape: Past, Present and Future

June 18, 2015 | 12:00 p.m.

Key developments in economic sanctions regimes over the last 18 months – spanning Cuba, Russia/Ukraine, and Iran, to cyber and beyond – have had a wide-ranging impact on businesses, and continue to raise a host of challenges for officials and industry players alike. Venable LLP and the Stimson Center held a conversation about the practical implications of sanctions regimes. Industry experts, regulators, and practitioners discussed how high policy is translated into concrete implementation measures, and how companies deal with the real-world fallout in their strategic and operational decision-making.
