Series: LEGAL RESEARCH GUIDES
Subjects: INTERNATIONAL LAW, INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
This guide is an introduction to the basic doctrines, institutions, and methodology of international sanctions, as it provides an overview of legal and operational capacity requirements for effective sanctions implementation by nation-states and international organizations—effective border control, well-organized and monitored financial systems, secured travel documents identification system, migration controls, legal and administrative capacities commensurate with the complexity of sanction regimes, and the capacity for international cooperation in the implementation and enforcement of sanctions. Many nations have used sanctions or have had sanctions imposed against them or their citizens. Nation-states have also often used sanctions to impose economic rather than armed force. As such, sanctions have been commonly used in foreign relations, peacekeeping, and conflict resolution.
In addition to providing an explanation on the importance of the topic, this guide provides research methodologies into the purposes, types, and targets of sanctions. It goes into specifics on the many UN sanctions passed from the Cold War era up to the present, and explains the administrative framework for U.S. sanctions and all the departments and agencies that can be involved. It lists the requisite sources to consult, including primary and secondary material and databases.
