Overview

The fall of the Berlin Wall has allowed the United Nations to intervene more aggressively in international affairs, including the imposition of mandatory economic sanctions nine times compared to just twice prior to 1990. The second edition of the Institute's influential study on economic sanctions thoroughly updated the first one to address these new developments arising from the end of the Cold War and the increasing globalization of the world economy.

Now, a new third edition of the study chronicles and examines 170 cases of economic sanctions imposed since World War I. Fifty of these cases were launched in the 1990s and are new to the third edition. Examples of the case studies may be found on the Institute's website (www.iie.com). Analyzing a range of economic and political factors that can influence the success of a sanctions episode, the authors distill a set of "commandments" to guide policymakers in the effective use of sanctions.
