The objective of the symposium is to raise awareness of the impact of unilateralism on issues such as human ‎rights and international trade and investment in the context of international law.

Economic Sanctions under International Law

Editors: Marossi, Ali Z., Bassett, Marisa R. (Eds.)

With oversight from a group of internationally renowned scholars of international law, this volume gathers contributions by some of the leading experts. The book is purported to provide a seminal
study on the limits of economic sanctions under international law, including accountability mechanisms that might exist when sanctioning States go too far. The authors provide novel and important contributions as to how existing legal structures can be used to ensure that eco- nomic sanctions remain within a legal order, where there are gaps in the law.

With oversight from a group of internationally renowned scholars of international law, this volume gathers contributions by some of the leading experts. The book is purported to provide a seminal

The authors provide novel and important contributions as to how existing legal structures can be used to ensure that eco- nomic sanctions remain within a legal order, where there are gaps in the law.

The reviewers recognized this work as a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in international law, particularly those involved in inter- national economic law, public international law and international dispute resolution.
