About the Program

The Sanctions & Security Research Program is a leading source of scholarly expertise and analysis on the use of economic sanctions and incentives as instruments of peacemaking and international law enforcement. The program provides research, consulting services, and policy recommendations to governments and organizations seeking to make sanctions and incentives more effective ways to resolve conflict and enforce international norms.

The program partnered with the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies and the Fourth Freedom Forum. It has received support from the United States Institute of Peace, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Alton Jones Foundation, the International Peace Academy (currently the International Peace Institute), and the foreign ministries of Canada, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Switzerland, Belgium, Japan, and Germany.
