Western Economic Statecraft and Russia

Grant Year: 2022

Nigel Gould-Davies will research and write a book assessing the extent to which economic statecraft and sanctions can be effective in influencing the conduct of major powers such as Russia. He will document the intent and design of sanctions instruments vis-à-vis Russia, measure their economic effects, gauge the degree to which sanctions achieved deterrent or compellent effects, identify Moscow’s responses to lessen the impact of sanctions, and explore the lessons the Russia case may have for other potential sanctions targets.
