The IBA’s response to the situation in Ukraine
3 May - 5 May 2023
Thursday 4 May (1115 - 1245)
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has created an unprecedented reaction from the most powerful countries in the world. From weapons to massive aid programmes, the efforts to counter the Russian actions include a long and diverse list of sanctions. Commentators and practitioners around the world have been discussing the power and effectiveness of the different sanctions programmes as a tool for the counterattack on the invading forces.
This panel will consider several points of view, offering perspectives from the criminal enforcement and business crime legal communities around the world, in an effort to understand the effectiveness of these, in paper, powerful weapons.
