This article proposes a solution to the crisis of due process that has been generated by the UN Security Council targeting sanctions against listed individuals, commercial entities and other organizations. It addresses the strategic paradox that UN listing, ostensibly designed to enhance global security, is increasingly undermining the legitimacy and efficacy of targeted sanctions. The article proposes, for constructive resolution of the due process dilemma of UN listing, that the blacklisting mandated by sanctions resolutions of the United Nations Security Council be undertaken exclusively through the processes of national and regional law. The article explains how this can avoid the due process dilemma of UN listing, while significantly enhancing the targeting of sanctions as a principal tool for achieving peace and world order.
