Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine economic sanctions as a foreign policy instrument and to give judgment to their efficiency and impact. Since WWI economic sanctions have been used as a tool for preventing conflicts and signaling instrument of foreign policy. Their efficiency and impact have been the main topics for many discussions. Since the War in Yugoslavia in 1991, economic sanctions gained on their importance and usage. Two classical examples of economic sanctions will be discussed in this paper: War in Yugoslavia and sanctions against Iran. Economic sanctions appear to be unsuccessful in most cases and their usual victims are innocent inhabitants. Keywords: Economic sanctions, efficiency of economic sanctions, Yugoslavia, Iran.
