On Fridays with Fintelekt today, hear from Peter Piatetsky, Co-Founder and CEO, Castellum.AI as he provides his expert comments and analysis on the global sanctions regime, with host Shirish Pathak, Managing Director, Fintelekt.
Peter has had a stint supporting US military operations and then with the US Treasury as senior policy advisory for Iran. His experience on the challenges in accessing data on sanctions led him to found Castellum.AI with the mission of building a ‘google’ for compliance, an easy to access online platform at an affordable price point so that anyone globally can find compliance data.
Sanctions have evolved over the years from the level of countries to individuals to sectors. They been used for a variety of reasons from political to counter-terrorism, law enforcement, corruption and human rights. Peter believes that sanctions can be used as a very successful tool if there is a specific goal. The broader that goal, the more difficult it is to achieve via sanctions.
Within the conversation, Peter takes us through many interesting insights on the US sanctions against Turkey, the current situation in Afghanistan, and the US-China conflict following the Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law. He also speaks about his research on human rights violations caused due to sanctions.
For all of this and more, tune in to the entire episode!
