Sanctions, the Caesar Act, and COVID-19 in Syria

The 35-page report, Sanctions, the Caesar Act, and COVID-19 in Syria, conducts a rigorous assessment of urgent needs in Syria based on interviews with experts, analysts, and organizations working in the humanitarian and medical sectors in Syria. The report then examines the relationship between these needs and the imposition of economic sanctions, identifying areas where sanctions procedures, licenses, and humanitarian exemptions can be improved.
