The Relationship between United Nations Sanctions and Regional Sanctions Regimes
One of the most notable developments in the sanctions landscape over the past couple of decades has been the proliferation of sanctions imposed by regional organizations. Of the sixty-three United nations sanctions episodes studies by the consortium, forty-three involve regional organizations, in some cases a multiplicity of them. In twelve sanctions regimes, regional sanctions preceded the UN sanctions, and in ten cases, unilateral sanctions preceded the UN sanctions. In fact only six episodes are of standalone UN sanctions. This suggests that staes subject to sanctions are increasingly targeted by a combination of UN and regional measure.
