Abstract

This chapter examines the compatibility of targeted sanctions – that is, sanctions directed against specific named persons – with the human rights of those who they target. It addresses both sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council and other international organisations, in particular the European Union, and individual States. And it does so by looking at the compatibility of such sanctions with procedural and substantive human rights.

Keywords: targeted sanctions, United Nations Security Council, European Union, human rights, rule of law, judicial review

JEL Classification: K33
