The new book scrutinises the rationale and enforcement of the continuing United Nations sanctions in Iraq -- a programme widely criticised for imposing misery on an entire population in a fruitless attempt to humble a cynical tyrant. It is the first book-length study ever undertaken of the functioning of a Security Council sanctions committee. It analyses in detail substantive UN sanctions law, the operation of mandatory Chapter VII sanctions, and their practical enforcement strategies. The author offers recommendations, both legislative and organisational, for improving the effectiveness of multilateral sanctions measures in the future. Providing a rare insider's view of this aspect of international law and organisation, and based largely on previously unpublished documents, this book will be of great interest for the light it sheds on the background to the current UN impasse on Iraq. There two statistical tables, lists of committee members and meetings, and a select bibliography.
