Sanctions are financial, physical, and other measures taken to prevent certain types of activities or to influence the behavior of countries, groups, or individuals. Economic sanctions have traditionally been defined as the “deliberate, government-inspired withdrawal, or threat of withdrawal, of customary trade and financial relations with a target country in an effort to change that country’s policies.” In other words, economic sanctions are legal measures that typically restrict or prohibit trade and financial transactions with specified targets. Sanctions may also allow certain types of behavior, such as investment in a sanctioned country, but require that it be reported. A key point is that sanctions are legal measures; they have the force of law, and failure to comply with them can give rise to potentially severe penalties.
