This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant agreement No.716216 - PROSANCT) from March 2017 until August 2022. It will lead to the publication of a new monograph on the articulation between financial sanctions and the fragmentation of the financial and trade orders. In various coauthored articles with ERC-funded team members, including a landmark article published in the American Journal of Sociology, I have already explained how the United States has changed the regulation of financial markets through the imposition of financial sanctions against its enemy states, therefore accelerating a trend toward "deglobalization." Other articles have described how international markets, including in the food and medicial sectors, have been affected by the far-reaching operations of sanctions and their effects on market rationalities through derisking practices.  The ERC project was conducted in parallel with another project funded by the Swiss Network for International Studies (SNIS) that I lead from October 2020 until March 2023, which contributes to pressing policy debates by focusing on the effects of sanctions on humanitarian trade and the disruptions in global value chains in the food and health sector.
