Great Decisions Speaker Series: Economic Warfare

What comprises economic warfare? How have these measures been used recently against Russia?

Waging economic warfare consists of a variety of measures from implementing sanctions to fomenting labor strikes. Such tools are utilized by states to hinder their enemies, and in the case of the United States have been used as far back as the early 19th century. Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, economic warfare has been the main means for the west to challenge Russia. How effective will these sanctions be at convincing Russia to cease its war?

Our featured speaker will be Elina Ribakova, Deputy Chief Economist at the International Institute of Finance.

The Great Decisions Speaker Series is a collaborative effort between UMSL Global and the World Affairs Council of St. Louis, and is based on the Foreign Policy Association's Great Decisions discussion series.
