Episode 9: US Sanctions

In this lesson, we are joined by Alfonso Cortes, Finance & Economic Unit Chief, US Embassy London, as we explore US sanctions.

What sanctions have the United States authorised in recent years to counter threats to national security? How can sanctions elicit a change in behaviour regarding terrorism, drug trafficking, and human rights issues? And why would the President of the United States sign an executive order? Join us for this lesson as we learn about the history of US sanctions and their impact on the global landscape.
