Political unrest and armed conflict are increasing with aid sanctions being the most common tool to respond to certain types of political events. Aid sanctions are a unique tool of statecraft previously thought not to impact the humanitarian population. This research seminar explores findings of how aid sanctions impact maternal and child health in fragile nations. Join Professor Paul Wise and Dr. Ruth Gibson for a conversation about protecting MCH during political unrest and how sanctions might be used to protect principles of international law while minimizing harm to local populations.
