Sanctions of Our Time: Iran, Venezuela and the Kingpins

In this episode, recorded in February before the scale of the global COVID-19 outbreak, Kieran Beer and Adam Szubin discuss the effectiveness of sanctions on Iran, Venezuela and the Kingpin Act.

A sanctions insider for many years, Adam Szubin has a distinguished history of service with the U.S. Treasury, including nine years as the director of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). As one of the architects of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), he is uniquely placed to comment on the current U.S. administration’s shifts in sanctions policy, and the effect they’re having on geopolitics—far beyond the borders of Iran.
