Chapter 38: The United Nations Security Councils counter-terrorism ISIL (Daesh) and Al-Qaida sanctions regime
Since its creation, the 1267 sanctions regime, known today as the ‘ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaeda Sanctions’, has been subject to numerous and radical transformations in response both to wider historical and political events and growing criticism of the regime itself, in particular its human rights implications. This chapter gives an overview of the evolution of the sanctions regime and the controversies surrounding the practice of ‘blacklisting’ individuals and entities suspected of association with Al-Qaida. The chapter concludes that despite the significant improvements brought about by the establishment of Office of the Ombudsperson to review delisting requests, the ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaeda Sanctions regime still presents a number of problems for the rights of individuals targeted by the sanctions. In particular, while the Ombudsperson delisting system has to some extent been providing an effective remedy to listed individuals and entities, it still lacks procedural fairness in a number of areas.
