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 discussed the step from freezing sanctioned assets to their confiscation and repurposing from a legal and political perspective. It featured 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.

Global Europe Program

The Global Europe Program is focused on Europe’s capabilities, and how it engages on critical global issues.  We investigate European approaches to critical global issues. We examine Europe’s relations with Russia and Eurasia, China and the Indo-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Our initiatives include “Ukraine in Europe” – an examination of what it will take to make Ukraine’s European future a reality.  But we also examine the role of NATO, the European Union and the OSCE, Europe’s energy security, transatlantic trade disputes, and challenges to democracy. The Global Europe Program’s staff, scholars-in-residence, and Global Fellows participate in seminars, policy study groups, and international conferences to provide analytical recommendations to policy makers and the media.  Read more
