FiveBy Director of Risk Intelligence, Irene Kenyon, on 5 September 2022 participated in New Paradigms—a show that asked the question: Are sanctions still relevant in a multipolar world?
The answer is nuanced. Sanctions are effective foreign policy when done intelligently. They work when goals are specific, and the implementation and enforcement strategies are focused and multilateral. In coordination with our partners and allies, sanctions are most effective against illicit actors and states.
Irene also states that sanctions compliance in our volatile environment is getting more complicated and expensive, especially since the sanctions against Russia are of primary importance to the current administration. However, the best compliance solutions don’t have to be expensive, especially given the managed services cost. A mix of automation and human-driven analysis to interpret what is sometimes vast reams of data is the best option to implement a robust compliance program.
