SanctionsConnect calls take place every last Friday of the month and are member-only video calls.

Discuss a relevant topic with fellow ACSS members in a safe, Chatham House Rule environment.

This month’s topic covers how sanctions regimes are sometimes very broad and can have unintended negative consequences. There are humanitarian exceptions, but these are sometimes complex or unknown. Join the discussion about the use of humanitarian exceptions and practical issues that may arise.
