Old Government House Lecture Theatre, University of Auckland

Economic sanctions have a long and chequered history.  In this talk Stephen Hoadley traces their character, their usefulness, their initiators and targets, and their successes and failures.  He then assesses their effectiveness against Putin’s attack of Ukraine, and their possible deployment against Xi’s China in the event of an attack on Taiwan.  On-going sanctions against North Korea, Iran, and Myanmar also will be discussed and assessed.   Stephen will show slides and welcome questions and comments from the audience.
