In recent years sanctions have become an increasingly popular tool
of foreign policy, not only at the multilateral level (at the UN),
but also regionally (the EU in particular) and unilaterally. The
nature of the measures imposed has also changed: from comprehensive
sanctions regimes (discredited since Iraq in the 1990s) to
`targeted' or `smart' sanctions, directed at specific individuals
or entities (through asset freezes and travel bans) or prohibiting
particular activities (arms embargoes and export bans). Bringing
together scholars, government and private practitioners, Economic
Sanctions and International Law provides an overview of recent
developments and an analysis of the problems that they have
engendered. Chapters examine the contemporary practice of the
various actors, and the legality (or otherwise) of their
activities. Issues considered include the human rights of persons
targeted, and the mechanisms established to challenge their
listing; as well as, in cases of sanctions imposed by regional
organisations and individual states, the rights of third States and
their nationals. The book will be of interest to scholars and
practitioners of international law and politics.
