Conclusions and Implications
At the International Studies Association annual meetings in 2002, a discussant on an economic sanctions panel suggested that sanction success is no longer an interesting question because sanctions simply do not work. Instead, other unanswered questions concerning economic coercion should be investigated. In this book, I have investigated and attempted to answer some of these questions, specifically: the decisions to initiate and modify a sanction policy, the selection of the type of sanction, whether a bias toward a type of country exists, the contrast between foreign policy sanctions and Section 301 sanctions, and the differences in the sanctioning decision calculus between the Cold War and post-Cold War eras.
