Boycotting a dictatorship: who does it really hurt?

  • Philippe Delacote

    ()

    (INRA AgroParisTech, LEF)

Consumer boycotts and international economic sanctions represent a frequent tool to protest against countries for their violation of human rights. This paper questions if such a kind of action hurts more the populations it is supposed to defend than governing classes it is targeting. Overall, boycotts of more rapacious regimes may decrease more the well-being of the population than the one of the governing class.
