Cambridge, MA – Former Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter will join the Harvard Kennedy School as the Belfer Professor of Technology and Global Affairs and Director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. As Secretary of Defense, Carter, a physicist, became known for pushing the Pentagon to “think outside its five-sided box” in order to transform the way the military fought adversaries and strengthened alliances, managed its budget and talent, developed its technology, and more. He will now lead the Belfer Center’s programs and will focus his scholarship on the role of innovation and technology in addressing challenges at home and around the world.
Iran Project Director’s Seminar with Jamal Ibrahim Haidar, Paris School of Economics, University of Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne, and CREST
How effective have sanctions been in impacting Iranian exports? This presentation argues that exports sanctions may be less effective in a globalized world as exporters can deflect their exports from one export destination to another. Using highly dis-aggregated data about Iranian non-oil exports, it uncovers the existence, extent, and mechanism of Iranian exports deflection following the imposition of exports sanctions. It shows how exporter size, past export status, and pricing strategy matter in the process of exports deflection.
