How do international economic sanctions (not) work?

International economic sanctions are often aimed at creating political changes in target countries and seen as a non-violent and "cheap" way of pursuing international conflict. But such actions can be deadlier than war: sanctions in the 1990s resulted in hundreds of thousands more Iraqi deaths than the 1991 Gulf War. Despite debate about the effectiveness of such forms of enforcement among scholars and policymakers, it is not yet understood how they are meant to work. This project will seek to fill this void by analysing how sanctions affect power resources and strategies of domestic forces in target countries, looking at how this external pressure works to reshape the state, economy and society.
