Key benefits for you

The course will enable you to:

  • Understand the process of international sanctions design and how to secure their implementation;
  • Develop comparative perspectives on different types of international sanctions regimes and their challenges;
  • Enhance skills to design and apply international sanctions regimes; and
  • Access an extensive network of expertise in international affairs and security as a GCSP alumnus.

Why you should attend

This course will empower you with expert insights on a rapidly expanding field. International sanctions have become a primary tool of global and regional organisations to stem civil wars, military coups, support democratic transitions or non-proliferation. As a result, sanctions regimes have become more diverse and complex. There are an increasing number of active UN sanctions regimes, and many others imposed by the European Union, the African Union, the League of Arab States and unilateral mandates. For some, sanctions are the last policy step to prevent an armed intervention – while others see them only as the preamble to the use of military force.

Participant profile

Participants come from international or regional organisations, national administrations, sanctions or expert
groups, private corporations, technical practitioners (e.g., customs, aviation, weapon manufacturers, etc) and human rights organisations.
