YTP & YPFP Discussion and Happy Hour: Economic Sanctions

05/16/2017 at 6:30 PM (US/Eastern)
Mackey's Pub Library Room 1306 G St NW Washington, DC 20005
In recent years, U.S. economic sanctions have been used as a means to achieve U.S. foreign policy goals and affect a change in behavior in certain countries and regions. Will the new administration take the same position with respect to countries such as Iran and Russia? Or will we see a shift in policy and application of U.S. sanctions? Please join Young Trade Professionals and Young Professionals in Foreign Affairs Trade and Finance Group for a happy hour discussion on these timely topics and more as we explore how the sanctions landscape may change in the coming years. Opening remarks by Tyler Cullis, Legal Fellow and Policy Associate for the National Iranian American Council, and Associate with Ferrari & Associates, P.C., a boutique firm specializing in U.S. economic sanctions.
