Chapter Summary

Notwithstanding the negative and even devastating effects targeted anti-terrorist sanctions can have at the individual level, from the theoretical point of view, they raise interesting and challenging questions. This article concentrates on two of them, which seem particularly typical of and relevant to the current debate on targeted sanctions. The first tackles the relationship between the fight against terrorism and human rights, epitomizing a more general (and somewhat false) dilemma between security and liberty; the other deals with the relationship between several normative and institutional orders (namely the universal, regional and national ones), cooperating, and sometimes clashing, in the adoption and implementation of targeted sanctions. In order to have a clear focus, the sanction regime based on UN Security Council Resolution 1267 (1999), which has so far given way to the most intensive research as well as the most vigorous controversies, is addressed here.

Keywords: institutional coherency; international law normative; sanction regime; targeted anti-terrorist sanctions; UN Security Council Resolution 1267
