Iran's Civilians Bear Brunt of International Sanctions

Posted Nov. 7, 2012

Interview with Joy Gordon, professor of law and philosophy at Fairfield University, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

iran

During the 2012 election campaign, both President Obama and his challenger Mitt Romney called for ever-tougher sanctions on Iran in an effort to prevent that country from developing a nuclear weapon. For the record, Iran denies it is working on a weapon, maintaining it is working to develop nuclear power for civilian purposes only.

Unilateral U.S. sanctions have been layered on those imposed by the United Nations, the European Union, and other governments. The multi-faceted economic embargo is making life continually harder for ordinary Iranians, much as the decade-long sanctions against Iraq, from the end of the first Persian Gulf War to the 2003 U.S. invasion, impacted the lives of ordinary Iraqis more than that of officials in Saddam Hussein's government.

Between The Lines' Melinda Tuhus spoke with Joy Gordon, a professor of law and philosophy at Fairfield University in Fairfield, Conn., who wrote the definitive book on the Iraq sanctions and has followed the situation in Iran closely. Here she discusses how so-called "targeted sanctions" designed to focus on the government of President Mamoud Amadinejad have led to life-and-death consequences for many ordinary Iranians.

Joy Gordon's book is "Invisible War: The United States and the Iraq Sanctions" published by Harvard University Press. Find more information on the effects of economic sanctions on civilian populations at ForeignAffairs.com.
