SanctionsApp Launch

In late June, Senior Fellow Sue Eckert and Adjunct Professor of International Studies Thomas Biersteker launched the SanctionsApp at the Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations in New York. The free application, designed for mobile phones and tablets, is based on the research of the international Targeted Sanctions Consortium (TSC), which Eckert and Biersteker co-direct. TSC databases and analysis include all 22 UN sanctions regimes from the past 20 years, and provide policymakers and scholars examining, designing, or implementing United Nations sanctions easy access to a host of useful information.
