Chapter 6: UN sanctions as human rights and humanitarian law devices
In recent years, the Security Council has increasingly utilized UN sanctions to induce compliance with international humanitarian and human rights law. This chapter critically appraises this practice, also looking behind the relevant resolutions to assess their actual implementation. The chapter has a specific focus on the protection of children. It argues that the use of sanctions as human rights devices should not be looked at in isolation and that the Security Council’s engagement with thematic issues should be viewed from a wider, comprehensive perspective. Keywords Security Council and human rights, Security Council and international humanitarian law, Security Council and children
