Transnationalism in the Context of Economic Sanctions

Transnationalism in the Context of Economic Sanctions

(p.1) 1 Transnationalism in the Context of Economic Sanctions
Failed Sanctions

Paolo Spadoni

University Press of Florida

Many scholars of international relations have assessed the effectiveness of sanctions by focusing on the economic adjustments introduced by the target country to cope with external pressure, neglecting the importance of growing transnational flows of capital and finance in the context of globalization. This chapter examines the success rate of U.S. unilateral economic sanctions and explores the prevailing discourses on transnational linkages at both global and local levels in order to structure the proposed case study and identify theoretical assumptions relevant to its working hypotheses. Transnational practices by non-state actors such as multinational corporations and migrants are given special attention since foreign investment and remittances have played a major role in keeping afloat the Cuban economy in the post-cold war era.

Keywords:   transnationalism, economic sanctions, non-state actor, Cuban economy, post-cold war era, foreign investment
