Excerpt from the New Report on US/EU Sanctions on Syrian Nationals

Wael Alwani and I show here the cumulative number of Syrians sanctioned by the EU and the US from January 2011 to April 2021. We also overlaid the key events and turning points in the Syrian conflict to make it easier to understand the overall context of sanctions.

Generally speaking, the succession of events and sanctions should not be interpreted causally, as there may have been other factors at play.

This was part of my study with Wael on the effectiveness of Western sanctions on Syria.
