The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence is pleased to host an in-person book launch for "Multilateral Sanctions Revisited: Lessons Learned From Margaret Doxey", edited by Dr. Andrea Charron of the University of Manitoba and Dr. Clara Portela of the University of Valencia.

About the event: Sanctions are back with a vengeance with new objectives, measures, challenges, and opportunities. Shaping the thinking of generations of scholars, Canadian visionary Margaret Doxey anticipated and analyzed these issues, making now the time to rediscover her seminal lessons and apply them to emerging sanctions practices that are taking shape in an increasingly geopolitically contested environment.

Written by an international team of women, Multilateral Sanctions Revisited explores UN measures, regional sanctions, autonomous measures, and their interrelations. Informed by Doxey’s insights, the authors trace the evolution of scholarship surrounding multilateral sanctions. The first section analyzes how different actors, such as great powers and regional organizations, employ multilateral sanctions. Turning to contemporary issues, the book’s second section addresses the application and consequences of multilateral sanctions, including the norms they enforce, the pernicious problem of evasion, and future challenges, such as sanctioning cryptocurrencies.

Multilateral Sanctions Revisited is both a source for academics and a guidebook for practitioners written by leading and emerging sanctions scholars from three continents.
