Overview

In recent years, international attention has turned toward the use of targeted, 'smart' sanctions that minimize unintended humanitarian consequences and focus coercive pressure on responsible decision makers. Some of the world's leading sanctions experts and practitioners join together in this book to provide the first published account of the emerging theory and practice of smart sanctions. The essays examine recent uses of targeted financial sanctions, travel sanctions, and arms embargoes and offer recommendations for improving their design and implementation. Also included is an account of the targeted European Union sanctions that helped bring down the Milosevic regime in Yugoslavia, and a proposal for restructuring UN sanctions in Iraq. The result is a groundbreaking panorama of the latest developments in international sanctions policy, and a range of practical strategies for making sanctions a more humane and effective instrument of international policy.
