Chapter Summary

This chapter endeavours to give some insight into the problems of one of the most interesting cases of the impact of international regulation on the individual. The issue of individuals affected by UN sanctions not only raises questions of legal protection, it also touches on some typical problems of the multilevel system, especially the question of which courts should entertain such cases and how to reconcile the court action on the different levels. Under these aspects, the paper analyses the Yusuf Ayadi and Möllendorf cases of the European Court of First Instance (CFI) and the European Court of Justice (ECJ), respectively, as well as the Bosphorus judgment of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). After an assessment of this status quo of legal protection against UN sanctions, the chapter looks at possible future developments in regional court action in its conclusion.

Keywords:Court of First Instance (CFI); European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR); legal protection; multilevel system; status quo; UN sanctions
