Targeted Sanctions & Geopolitical Considerations: A Case Study of India

Webinar: Monday, February 27, 3:00 – 4:15pm EST.

This online panel discussion aims at exploring the interplay between geopolitical considerations and the imposition of targeted human rights sanctions. India will serve as a case study given its geopolitical importance in Asia and the various relations it holds with countries with Magnitsky-style laws i.e. UK, USA, Canada, and Australia. The discussion aims at prompting critical reflections among decision-makers in those countries, on the use of targeted human rights sanctions in situations where geopolitical interests are at play. It will create a unique platform to hear from experts across different countries.

Speakers include:

  • Bill Browder, Chair, Global Magnitsky Justice Campaign, moderator
  • David Shoebridge, Senator (for New South Wales), Australian Parliament (Greens)
  • Arif Virani, Member of Parliament, Canada (Liberal)
  • Amanda Strayer, Attorney at Human Rights First, Washington DC
  • Natalia Kubesch, Legal Officer, Redress, London

This event is jointly organized by the Australian Centre for International Justice, Human Rights First, the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights, Redress, and the South Asia Justice Campaign.
