From Freezing to Seizing? The Future of Sanctions

Date & Time

Dec. 8, 2022
10:00am – 11:00am ET


6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
and Online


Russia’s illegal aggression against Ukraine has led to a new level of comprehensive sanctions and intense coordination between the US and Europe. There is an ongoing debate on both sides of the Atlantic on ways to use sanctioned assets to compensate for the damages incurred by the Russian aggression and to support Ukraine in rebuilding the country.

The event will discuss the step from freezing sanctioned assets to their confiscation and repurposing from a legal and political perspective. It will feature introductory remarks by H.E. Graziella Marok-Wachter, Minister of Infrastructure and Justice of Liechtenstein, followed by an expert panel discussion and a Q&A.
