#YoungITATalks Turkey - Global Supply Chains: Navigating Sanctions

#YoungITATalks Turkey - Global Supply Chains: Navigating Sanctions

Hosted by Moroğlu Arseven

Supply chains for many businesses now span the globe – and, more and more, so do international sanctions. Governments have progressively turned to sanctions as tools of foreign policy and national security, enacting sweeping export controls and financial restrictions against an ever-expanding list of entities and individuals. At the same time, the extraterritorial reach of these sanctions has continued to grow. As authorities now look to target sanctions circumvention, sanctions compliance is no longer only a concern for businesses in the US or EU. Sanctions, like trade, have undergone their own form of globalization.

Our event brings together perspectives from practitioners in private practice and in-house, across diverse jurisdictions, as we examine how businesses can navigate today’s network of sanctions. Together, we will be discussing extraterritorial scope and secondary sanctions, vulnerabilities in global supply chains to sanctions and how businesses can manage – and pre-empt – sanctions disputes with trading partners.

#YoungITATalks is a series of local events presented around the world, featuring talks, workshops or interviews that cover a wide range of subjects relating to arbitration. The #YoungITATalks series is designed for education, conversation and sharing knowledge and experiences among young practitioners.
