About the seminar:
The sanctions regime in major Western jurisdictions constantly evolves with new measures being adopted on monthly (and sometimes weekly) basis. It is perhaps the first time in history when sanctions dramatically affected not only international trade but mechanisms of dispute settlement. In this seminar we will discover how various sanctions regimes work across EU, UK and US and will look into the effect of economic sanctions on international arbitration.
