RUSI’s research examines the complex challenges surrounding the design and implementation of sanctions. Our approach to sanctions research is unique and provides much-needed input to a debate that is often conducted in professional silos.

In the lead-up to the UK’s exit from the EU, RUSI convened a high-level taskforce to assess questions relating to future UK sanctions policy. Our work also includes research on legislative developments in Washington and Brussels; the use of economic sanctions as a foreign policy tool more broadly; the implementation of country-based sanctions regimes (such as Russia or Iran); the role of technology in sanctions evasion; and counter-proliferation finance.
