The Value of Due Process in Security Council Sanctions Decision-Making

Devika Hovell

Oxford Monographs in International Law

  • Examines the need for development of a due process framework for Security Council targeted sanctions
  • Proposes three models of due process and assesses the implications of different models for the legitimacy of Security Council decision-making
  • Evaluates procedural frameworks, including those proposed through international court decisions, domestic court decisions and the office of the UN Ombudsperson
  • Demonstrates that the choice of a procedural framework represents a touchstone for the resolution of questions about notions of community, law, and values in the international legal order
