Ever since the start of Putin’s war on Ukraine, we have been hearing, reading about new and new sanctions packages against the aggressor. What are sanctions exactly? What theoretical, philosophical justifications are behind them? What can we expect from them in practice? Which sanctions can achieve their aims, which cannot? These are the questions our guests will discuss.
