This workshop aims to bring together feminist, queer, and post/decolonial scholars working on sanctioned countries to discuss various ways in which economic sanctions work through and reproduce the gendered, racialised, classed, and sexualized relations of power within and among nation-states. The workshop hopes to generate trans-regional, multi-disciplinary, and multi-temporal discussions on economic/financial sanctions from alternative feminist/queer/decolonial and non-western epistemologies and multidisciplinary frameworks. The workshop is going to be held in Spring 2023 (exact date to be announced) at the University of Warwick.
The workshop is organized by Asma Abdi and benefits from the support of renowned scholars both in the field of critical sanction studies as well as Feminist IR and Feminist IPE Nicola Pratt, Juanita Elias, and Eva Nanopoulos. It is funded in partnership with John Hopkins SAIS Rethinking Iran Initiative, the University of Warwick Department of Politics and International Studies (PAIS), and Queens Mary University Centre of Law and Society in a Global Context.
