Our panel will explore recent and upcoming litigation in relation to UK and global sanctions, national security issues, and the impact of these sanctions on commercial transactions and court responses. We'll cover topics such as:

  • The changing nature of sanctions in a post-Brexit world, with new global challenges in Ukraine and Middle East.
  • Challenges to sanctions measures, including under Article 1 Protocol 1 of the ECHR.
  • The impact of national and international regimes on commercial transactions and how courts approach these cases.
  • The implications of the National Security and Investment Act 2021 on commercial decision-making.
  • How the UK government uses its foreign policy prerogative to recognise or de-recognise governments or heads of state.
  • The use of exclusion orders and other immigration-related powers.
