Chapter Summary

Empirical research suggests that the closer the level of economic integration, the greater the effectiveness of sanctions. This study provides analysis that is relevant to the design of human rights related trade measures. But as the International law Commission's fragmentation study group recognised in its 2006 report, there is a limit to what technical legal analysis can achieve. Empirical and political assessments are also required to fully understand the potential and the dangers of human rights related trade measures. The empirical and political assessments also need to be considered in light of thorough international legal analysis of the relevant rules and principles of international law. To make a contribution to the existing body of international legal scholarship on human rights related trade measures has been the ultimate aim of this book.

Keywords: economic integration; human rights; International law Commission; international legal analysis; international legal scholarship; sanctions; trade measures
