Firstly, the theories of Realism, Liberalism, and Rationalism will be used to view the practice of sanctioning in general. I will at look how these theories explain the use of sanctions in terms of their effect on politics, power and trade. By adopting the mindset of each theory, it will be decided if they are likely to use sanctions, and to what end.
Next, I will analyze the US-Burmese sanctions specifically, and attempt to discern the goals and context of them. By context, I mean the means in which the sanctions were put into law; by executive order, or act of congress and the events in Burma which precipitated such an action. The goals will be explored in both their explicit (goals listed in the acts or orders) and implicit (the political significance) natures.
By synthesizing this information, it is possible to determine which theory is best being practiced by these sanctions. If it can be determined that sanctions are more compatible with some theories then others, it gives a valuable insight into the beliefs of sanctioning nations.
