United States: Ambassador Robert Kimmitt To Speak At CNAS Conference On US Sanctions And National Security
Last Updated: April 13 2016

WilmerHale Senior International Counsel Ambassador Robert Kimmitt, former Deputy Secretary of the United States Department of the Treasury, will join fellow esteemed speakers for a panel discussion on US sanctions and national security at the Center for New American Security (CNAS) public conference on April 15 at NYU Washington DC. Kimmitt, along with two other distinguished individuals, will discuss the role of coercive economic measures in tackling the security challenges of the future. 

Joining Kimmitt for the discussion are former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Middle East Policy Matt Spence and former Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration Sue Eckert. The event coincides with the release of a CNAS report on the effects and effectiveness of sanctions since 9/11. The conference will explore the following questions:

  • How can the United States measure and achieve intended effects from the use of coercive economic measures?
  • What place should sanctions have in the US national security arsenal?
  • As American rivals become more familiar with the tools of economic statecraft, what defensive measures are available to protect US interests from retaliation for the imposition of sanctions?

The conference is co-hosted by the Center on Law and Security at NYU School of Law and will take place on Friday, April 15 from 8:45–11:30 a.m. at NYU Washington DC (1307 L Street NW). Attendance is free. Visit the CNAS event page to register and learn more.
