Upcoming Panel Discussion Event in the Sir Duncan Rice Library – EU as a Global Actor: The Role of EU Sanctions in Helping Striving Democracies

Draft poster_EDIC_Eu Global ActorOn the 16th of February the Sir Duncan Rice Library will host an event with the objective of provoking students interest in EU foreign policy, with particular focus on the mechanism of sanctions. It has been collaboratively organized by Europe Direct Aberdeen and Elsa (European Law Students’ Association). Here’s what they have to say about it:

In the recent years the European Union has been gaining strength as a global actor: it has been a participant of the peace processes in Middle East, Ukraine, and Philippines. One of the mechanisms the EU uses to influence the behaviour of various foreign actors is the sanctions regime. The event is aimed at shedding light on the mechanism of the EU sanctions, its difference from other sanctions regimes, and its goals and effectiveness. To achieve that we will discuss the EU sanctions following the crisis in Ukraine; EU’s involvement in Iran sanctions lifting process; and the EU sanctions regimes in Uzbekistan and Myanmar. We will analyse the causes and the objectives of adopting the sanctions; whether those causes and objectives shift over time; and whether we can assess the effectiveness of these restrictive measures.


To book your place you can email europedirect@aberdeencity.gov.uk or go to the Eventbrite booking page.
