Please join the Atlantic Council’s Economic Sanctions Initiative and Kharon on Thursday, September 19th, for a public discussion of key sanctions trends and their related risks. The event will take place at the Atlantic Council’s offices in Washington, DC.

The event will feature presentations by sanctions experts from the Atlantic Council and Kharon, a panel discussion, and an audience Q&A. Topics of discussion will include emerging FinTech trends, the impact of alternative payment mechanisms, the status and outlook of Venezuela sanctions, the increasing significance of thematic sanctions, and important future trends such as potential changes to the 50% rule.
