Targeted Financial Sanctions: A Manual for Design and Implementation

Manual and Guideline
Originally published


Seeking to enhance the effectiveness of sanctions while avoiding excessive suffering to civilian populations or the infliction of economic damage on third states, this manual provides guidelines for the creation and implementation of targeted financial sanctions. It offers two main parts:

- Designing UN Security Council resolutions on targeted financial sanctions
- Implementing targeted financial sanctions at the national level

Condensing the insights of the Interlaken Process on targeted financial sanctions organized by Switzerland in cooperation with the UN Secretariat, the manual seeks to be of use to those responsible for drafting and implementing sanctions, as well as contribute to the development of incisive yet selective sanctions regimes.
