CCSI principals bring over 20 years of practitioners’ expertise to international sanctions policy and implementation.

Training – In collaboration with CRDF Global, CCSI organized sanctions implementation training workshops in Addis Ababa and Dar es Salaam in November 2018.

Innovation – CCSI is assisting the governments of Australia, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden in the development of two Best Practices Guides for key sanctions actors.

Research – Sanctions violations almost always include a range of additional violations of national and international laws and regulations. Understanding these broader illicit activities helps governments to identify behavior that can lead to sanctions violations.

This explainer video was produced by CCSI as a public service and to provide a brief introduction to the history of 50+ years of UN sanctions.
