Overview

This remarkable book scrutinizes the rationale and enforcement of the continuing United Nations sanctions in Iraq—a program widely criticized for imposing misery on an entire population in a fruitless attempt to humble a cynical tyrant. It is the first book-length study ever undertaken of the functioning of a Security Council sanctions committee. It analyzes in detail substantive UN sanctions law, the operation of mandatory Chapter VII sanctions, and their practical enforcement strategies. The author offers recommendations, both legislative and organizational, for improving the effectiveness of multilateral sanctions measures in the future. Providing a rare insider’s view of this aspect of international law and organization, and based largely on previously unpublished documents, United Nations Sanctions Management will be of great interest for the light it sheds on the background to the current UN impasse on Iraq. There are two statistical tables, four flowcharts, lists of committee members and meetings, and a select bibliography.
Published under the auspices of the Procedural Aspects of International Law Institute (PAIL). For more information about PAIL go to pail-institute.org.
