Rachel Barnes to speak on sanctions and embargoes

Rachel Barnes is speaking on Sanctions and Embargoes: International Law and Contemporary Practice, at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law on 29th April 2013.

Bringing together experts from both academia and practice, this conference will provide both an overview of these recent developments and an analysis of the problems that they have engendered. Panels will examine the contemporary practice of the various actors, and the legality (or otherwise) of their activities. Issues considered will include the human rights of persons targeted, and the mechanisms established to challenge listing; as well as, in cases of sanctions imposed by regional organizations and individual States, the rights of third States and their nationals.
