June 21, 2016 • 10:00 – 11:30 am EDT
A discussion with:
Ambassador Daniel Fried
Coordinator for Sanctions Policy, U.S. Department of State

Dr. Philipp Ackermann
Minister and Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany

Elizabeth Rosenberg
Senior Fellow and Director of the Energy, Economics and Security Program, Center for a New American Security

Simond de Galbert
Visiting Fellow, Europe Program, CSIS

Moderated by:
Heather A. Conley
Senior Vice President for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic; and Director, Europe Program, CSIS

In cooperation with the CNAS Energy, Economics and Security Program, please join us for the official launch of a new CSIS-CNAS report on U.S. and EU coordination on sanctions, and a timely discussion on transatlantic sanctions policy on the eve of the EU decision to roll-over its sanctions against Russia. As demonstrated by the July 2015 Iran nuclear deal, as well as by Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea and ongoing support for pro-Russian separatists in the Donbass, economic sanctions have become a statecraft tool of choice for the United States and the EU to address common security challenges. Panel participants will discuss the main political and economic challenges and opportunities to more closely coordinating sanctions policy. What are the risks of disagreement between U.S. and EU policy makers? What changes to U.S. and EU sanctions policy could help both sides to sustain sanctions coordination?
