Peter van Bergeijk brings together 40 leading experts from all continents to analyse state-of-the-art data covering the sharp increase in (smart) sanctions in the last decade. Original chapters provide detailed analyses on the determinants of sanction success and failure, complemented with innovative research on the impact of sanctions.

This timely Handbook provides both a thorough discussion of methodology as well as evidence-based policy advice on the efficient application of boycotts, embargoes, and targeted sanctions, including trade, travel and financial sanctions. The use of case studies from Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Russia illustrate developments and demonstrate new methods, including stochastic frontier analysis, comparative quantitative analysis and meta-analysis.

Providing crucial information, this Handbook will be an excellent resource for academic researchers in international political economy and international relations as well as policy makers within national and global institutions. It will also provide obligatory reading for students also studying within these fields.
Critical Acclaim
‘Sanctions have become a ubiquitous and increasingly powerful tool of statecraft. With contributions from elite international sanctions experts, this Research Handbook examines data and analytical methods for gauging the haphazard impact of sanctions on trade, investment, and finance; reducing humanitarian costs and collateral damage to third countries; and assessing whether and how foreign economic coercion can promote policy change in the targeted regime. This compendium is an invaluable resource for ongoing sanctions research and a go-to guide for officials constructing and applying new sanctions policies.’
– Jeffrey J. Schott, Peterson Institute for International Economics, US

‘This Research Handbook is a thorough and well-organized volume on economic sanctions. It is a timely publication in view of significant changes in US policy and the increasing use of smart sanctions. Bringing together leading authors on sanctions from international economics, international relations and international law, the book provides an in-depth and well-balanced analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of economic sanctions and the role they may usefully play in the future.’
– Peter Van den Bossche, World Trade Institute, Switzerland
