Call for papers: “International Sanctions: The ‘other’ effects” (CIDOB, Spain)

Call for papers “International Sanctions: The ‘other’ effects”

Since the 1990s, the importance of sanctions as political instruments in international relations has grown. Recent examples are the European Union’s sanctions on Russia, the United States’ sanctions against Venezuela and Iran, and the United Nations’ sanctions against North Korea. In the field of academic research, a great deal of work has been done on the effectiveness and impact of sanctions from the point of view of those that impose them. Less is known about their other possible effects on countries that are subject to sanctions and countries that are not involved in the disputes, in other words, those that neither receive nor impose sanctions.

Issue 125 of Revista CIDOB d’Afers Internacionals aims to contribute to filling this gap in the academic literature. It will examine the influence of international sanctions on relations between states other than the sender and target – an influence that may be unintended or undesired by the sender.
