Britain’s sanction post-Brexit

On June 12, the Global Business and Economics Program’s Economic Sanctions Initiative hosted a private roundtable on the implications of Brexit for the United Kingdom’s sanctions policy, featuring Qudsi Rasheed, sanctions envoy for the UK government. He explained in detail the UK’s new institutional set-up for sanctions policy. Mr. Rasheed also discussed UK-US-EU cooperation on sanctions post-Brexit, of great importance given the outsized role the UK plays in sanctions policy. The conversation was opened Amb. Dan Fried and moderated by senior fellow Samantha Sultoon.
