The Unintended Consequences of UN Sanctions

PD Dr. habil. Patrick A. Mello, Willy Brandt School of Public Policy, University of Erfurt, Germany

 

Online via Zoom: https://uni-bamberg.zoom.us/j/92430279989
Password: Qrdd$0

Organiser: Dr Sofia Pagliarin

Sanctions are among the most frequently used foreign policy tools of governments and international organizations in reaction to crises in world politics. Reflective of this, scholarly literature on sanction effectiveness – their intended consequences is abundant. Yet, few studies address explicitly the unintended consequences of restrictive measures. This is remarkable given that negative externalities in the form of the rally-round-the-flag effect and the strengthening of authoritarian regimes are well documented. In this paper, we seek to explore this blind spot in the literature by asking under which conditions sanctions yield negative externalities. In doing so, we develop a theoretical conceptualization and explanatory framework of unintended consequences adequate for sanctions research. Empirically, we draw on recent data from the Targeted Sanctions Consortium (TSC) and apply fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) to examine negative externalities of United Nations (UN) sanctions, complemented by case illustrations from the sanctions regimes against Haiti and North Korea. The results document the existence of multiple pathways towards unintended consequences, highlighting the negative impact of comprehensive and long-lasting sanctions, as well as the ability of autocratic targets with economic means to persist unscathed from sanctions.

Causality and Empirical Methods in the Social Sciences

Dr Federica Russo, Faculty of Humanities, University of Amsterdam

 

Online via Zoom: https://uni-bamberg.zoom.us/j/92000426076
Password: #1s7cu

Organiser: Dr Sofia Pagliarin

Are there causal relations in the social realm? This is a hotly disputed question, which received positive as well as negative answers. In this talk, I first defend the view that social science research is concerned with establishing causal relations. To do so, the social sciences develop and employ a whole range of empirical methods, from quantitative to qualitative, and to mixed ones. Second, I explain the sense in which ‘causality’ acts as an epistemic norm that holds an essential role at each stage of the research process, and particularly at the level of study design and data collection. In my reading, causality as an epistemic norm is a stronger claim than ’no causes in, no causes out’, as it has to do with a given conceptualisation of the world, on which we base our causal modelling strategies. Third, I exemplify how this epistemic norm works by looking at questions of measurement in both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Ultimately, I aim to show that we can make causal inferences in a sound way -- in quantitative, qualitative, and mixed contexts -- provided that a sufficient level of reflection and self-reflection about our methodological choices and strategies is in place.

Organising your own event

BAGSS supports its doctoral and postdoctoral fellows in organizing workshops, guest lectures, lunchtime talks or courses in the subject areas covered by the Graduate School. Such events typically need to be of sufficient interest to more than one pillar. Proposals will be evaluated competitively once per semester in terms of quality and the volume of funds requested. All necessary documents can be found on the Virtual Campus (VC). For more information as well as for administrative assistance, please contact courses.bagss(at)uni-bamberg.de.

.........................................................................................................................................................

Research Poster Presentation

It is always nice to have an up to date presentation of our doctoral student’s current work! It also helps themselves to present their work ad-hoc in case they need to do so. In the Virtual Campus (VC) you can find three poster templates and adjust them to your needs. If there are questions regarding the style, content or printing of your poster, please contact courses.bagss(at)uni-bamberg.de.

.........................................................................................................................................................

Alumni Events

The main goal of these events is to present to our doctoral members possible career paths after graduation and build up important networks between past and current members of BAGSS. The events are open to all members of BAGSS as well as to students of the University of Bamberg.

.........................................................................................................................................................
