War Crimes Committee Conference - Session 3: Human rights-centered sanctions regimes

In recent years, many nations have adopted ‘Global Magnitsky’ and other human rights-centred sanctions regimes, in an effort to freeze the assets of those committing atrocity crimes or human rights abuses, on top of the existing sanctions regimes focused on counter-terrorism, drug trafficking and cross border illicit financial flows. The world has already seen the use of general and targeted sanctions during times of armed conflict or atrocity crimes, including in respect of Afghanistan, China, Myanmar, Syria, Yemen and now Russia-Ukraine. This panel will provide practitioners with information on the sanctions process – from the investigation and imposition of sanctions, to implementation and enforcement, to eventual seizure and use in reparations or restitution awards. The panel will also discuss the impact of sanctions on civilian populations, including humanitarian aid efforts, and the complexities involved with general and specific licences.
