February 9 – Economic Warfare
Waging economic warfare consists of a variety of measures from implementing sanctions to fomenting labor strikes. Such tools are utilized by states to hinder their enemies, and in the case of the United States have been used as far back as the early 19th century. Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, economic warfare has been the main means for the west to challenge Russia. How effective will these sanctions be at convincing Russia to cease its war?
Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, January 19, running through Thursday, March 9 in the Koch Building at the Aspen Institute.
Registration is now closed.
