Morad BALI presented the study on the sanctions modeling
Morad BALI is Assistant Lecturer (ATER) in economics at Sciences Po Grenoble (France). He is researcher at the Laboratory “CESICE” (Center for Studies on International Security and European Cooperation), France. He is also associate researcher at the IRNC (Institute for Research on Non-Violent Conflict Resolution), France. His research focuses on the economic impact of international sanctions.
One of the main challenges that economists must face while studying economic sanctions is to faithfully simulate them in their models. It seems extremely hard to achieve without a dedicated variable that precisely imitates economic coercive measures. Thence, a framework for the construction of economic sanction indexes is introduced. Researchers can use the developed multipurpose index modelling to simulate economic punishment in their econometric models. The work is framed within the Ukrainian crisis case and European economic sanctions against Russia.
