Monday, December 05, 2022
12.00 pm - 05.15 pm


Atlantik-Brücke is hosting a joint workshop with the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) on “Implementing Foreign Economic Policy: Strategy, Instruments and Trade-Offs” that brings together experts on international economic sanctions policy, export controls, investment screening and trade policy and decision-makers, practitioners, as well as stakeholders of the private sector.

The speakers are:

  • Oliver Rentschler, Director General for Foreign Climate Policy, Economics and Technology, Federal Foreign Office
  • Julia Friedlander, CEO, Atlantik-Brücke
  • Martin Chorzempa, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics
  • Laura von Daniels, Head of Research Unit “The Americas”, SWP

This workshop aims to contribute to a common understanding of what „economic statecraft“ entails. Participants will take a close look at crucial instruments and the policy goals they serve. Finally, participants will assess options for using such instruments in future American and European foreign policy making. In two sessions, participants will aim to reflect on the use of sanctions and export controls against Russia, particularly since the 24th of February 2022, and take a close look at new U.S. policy on export controls and sanctions and ways to cooperate with allies on such policies. The starting point for each session will be a presentation by an expert with deep knowledge on and experience in drafting and implementing foreign economic policy instruments.

An updated agenda can be found here.

We would like to thank SWP for their kind offer to co-host this event!

This event is aimed at members, Young Leaders alumni and New Bridge alumni of Atlantik-Brücke.
