On 17 September, the Atlantic Council published the latest edition of this publication which reviews the Summer’s designations and delistings with data visualisations and breaks down how China has applied its new Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law.  It explores the current state of sanctions against the Taliban and the growing effort to combat global corruption and human rights abuses through sanctions policy.  Since the start of this year, China has more than doubled its total sanctions. But its expanding regime is no aberration. Since January, Russia, France, Switzerland, Canada, the EU, UK, and US have all seen a substantial increase in their total sanctions. In fact, the only major listing authority that has not seen a total increase has been the UN.

Any modest contributions for my time and ongoing expenses are welcomed!  I have a page where you can do so, and where one-off contributions start as low as $3, at
