Happold: Targeted Sanctions and Human Rights

Matthew Happold (Université du Luxembourg - Law) has posted Targeted Sanctions and Human Rights (in Economic Sanctions and Human Rights, Matthew Happold & Paul Eden eds., forthcoming). Here's the 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.
