The Russia-Ukraine conflict is a critical geopolitical issue with far-reaching implications. Understanding the impact of economic sanctions against Russia in this context provides insights into how nations use economic coercion to influence international events. Because economic sanctions have significant ramifications, studying their effects is crucial for businesses, policymakers, economists, and the public at large. In this book, the editor selected six studies written by researchers from diverse perspectives who all have the particularity to be specialised in economic coercion and/or Russia. We are offering a unique overview of very specific themes that have not been examined before: how can a boycott of Russian oil strengthen/weaken Russia’s tendency to autocracy? What are the sociological repercussions for Russian science? Was Russia’s import-substitution strategy and industrial production affected by Western sanctions? Which factors influenced firms’ decisions to suspend or withdraw business operations in Russia? How were high-tech exports of Russian small and medium-sized enterprises influenced by sanctions? This book will not leave these questions unanswered, and will even go beyond by offering a final chapter that provides a complete and comprehensive assessment of economic sanctions’ impact on the Russian economy, covering sanctions implemented between 2014 and 2023.
