What can the Threat and Imposition of Economic Sanctions (TIES) database tell us about sanctions?
- Based on the previous two lectures, it is important to gather cases where sanctions were both imposed and not imposed. TIES does this.
- In almost half of the cases a state threatened sanctions, those sanctions were ultimately not imposed.
- Sanctions episodes tend to last less than a year.
- Most sanctions episodes are about economic issues; only a roughly a quarter are about security.
