Event Title: International responses to Putin’s aggression: How effective are military deterrence, economic sanctions, and diplomacy?
Event Type: Other
Category: Funded Projects
Organisor: University of Greifswald
The international community is struggling to find the best answers to Putin’s attack on Ukraine. The European Union, NATO, and member states have responded with diplomatic efforts, economic sanctions, weapons support, and increased military presence in the Baltic and Eastern European states. How will the current measures likely affect the behavior of Putin’s regime? This roundtable discusses the different foreign policy tools based on insights from previous research. We evaluate under what conditions deterrence and sanctions can be successful and how civil society and public opinion in an autocratic political system can impact their effectiveness.
The event will be held as a digital roundtable on March 9, 2022 - from 12:15 to 13:45 in Zoom:
