Sanctions, Soccer, and Scandal
Season 4 | Episode 2
Sanctions are a tool of foreign policy that are both overused and hardly understood. Some praise them as a decisive punishment and a cure-all of sorts, while others dismiss them as useless after of political theater. In these sweeping generalizations, the truth of the matter is lost. When do sanctions come into play? Who determines when and where are they used? Do governments place sanctions in isolation of other institutions, or does the media or other groups have an influence? Listen as we sit down with our researchers, Katya Sankow and Walter Sharon, and find out!
