IIEL Hosts Conversation with Former Deputy Director of the CIA on Russia, Venezuela and North Korea Sanctions
September 7, 2017 —
A candid conversation on U.S. sanctions policies, prospects and pitfalls with former CIA Deputy Director David Cohen. Professor Chris Brummer of our Institute for International Economic Law will interview Cohen about the latest developments in Russia, North Korea and Venezuela; the U.S. response to election interference and other rising national security threats; and the potential economic consequences of sanctions.
Before leaving the CIA in January, Cohen led the agency’s foreign intelligence collection, covert action, counter-intelligence, all-source analysis, and foreign liaison relationships. In his previous positions at the Department of Treasury, Cohen led efforts to “follow the money” in national security, counterterrorism and anti-money laundering investigations.
