Wednesday Excerpt: The Art of Sanctions


“Sanctions have become a hot policy tool and Richard Nephew—a key sanctions policy practitioner during the Obama administration—has written a masterful insider’s how-to guide. Those dealing with or worried about North Korea, Russia, or Iran would do well to learn lessons from The Art of Sanctions.”

Daniel Fried, former U.S. State Department coordinator for sanctions policy, and distinguished fellow, Atlantic Council

The Art of Sanctions offers a practical framework for planning and applying sanctions based on two critical factors: pain and resolve. Focusing on lessons learned from sanctions on Iran and Iraq, Richard Nephew provides policymakers with practical guidance on how to measure and respond to pain and resolve to achieve successful sanctions regimes.
