Evaluating the effects of economic sanctions against Burma

Andreasson, Gabriel (2008)
Department of Economics
Abstract
Burma is governed by a totalitarian military junta. Western countries are pressuring Burma towards a democratization process by imposing sanctions against the country. The effects of these sanctions are difficult to measure as many factors have to be taken into consideration. As circumvention of the sanctions is invariably being pursued, alternative trade routes and partners are beginning to develop. Thus, the sanctions implemented affect various and
alternative sectors despite their attempt to target specific goals. It is these effects and repercussions that must be considered when evaluating the impact of sanctions.
