Chapter 14: Challenging unilateral and extraterritorial sanctions under international economic law: exploring leads at the WTO and the OECD
Restricted access

The practice of unilateral and extraterritorial sanctions is strongly contested by third- and targeted states because of their broad scope and their negative economic impact. Their compatibility with international public law and international economic law is often discussed. Some states whose economic operators are affected seek to challenge these coercive measures before the dispute settlement bodies provided for by international economic organizations. Yet these international fora seem to be under-utilized with regard to contemporary practice. From this perspective, it is worth considering both limitations and potentials of such mechanisms to neutralize this controversial method of imposing unilateral economic sanctions, particularly those of the WTO and the OECD which offer the only examples of this challenge.
