Title: Do Magnitsky Type Sanctions Develop the Rule of Law?

Bill Browder (CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management)

Bronwen Maddox (CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital
Management, Head of the Global Magnitsky
Justice Campaign)

Moderator: Sir Geoffrey Nice KC (Gresham Professor of Law 2012-2016, co-founder Geoffrey Nice Foundation 2014
and IT Bencher)

The speakers will discuss the impact and international reach of legally approved financial sanctions. Given how Bill Browder persuaded the US Congress to pass The Magnitsky Act (formally the Russia and Moldova Jackson–Vanik Repeal and Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2012) and in the UK the "Magnitsky amendment" to the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill, allows the British government to impose sanctions on people who commit gross human rights violations.

The event will be delivered in person and online. The session will include an opportunity for Q&A and for post-talk networking.
