Abstract

This article addresses the use of economic coercion and the U.N. Charter with special attention to the Arab Oil Weapon and consequences from its use for several developing and other countries. Most apparently do not recognize that use of intense economic coercion can be unlawful under the U.N. Charter, but there should be more adequate attention to the impact of intense economic coercion on various policies at stake under the Charter and international law more generally.

Keywords: aggression, Arab Oil Weapon, Article 2(4), coercion, consequences, economic aggression, economic coercion, economic weapon, GATT, human right, peace and security, resources, self-determination, trade, U.N. Charter, weapon
