Export controls are part of the grand strategy of nations, variously limiting the provision of certain militarily critical, dual-use goods or technologies, or other exports whose withholding constitutes a form of economic warfare. They may be used to influence national behavior, as with the attempt to change policies of apartheid-era South Africa or Iraq under Saddam Hussein.
