New Book Symposium - The Power of Process: The Value of Due Process in Security Council Sanctions Decision-Making

19 October 2016

Time: 4:00 - 7:00pm
Venue: Room 313, Third Floor, Law Building, Queen Mary University of London, E1 4NS Mile End Road, United Kingdom

A new book symposium organised by the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC) for Dr Devika Hovell's book The Power of Process: The Value of Due Process in Security Council Sanctions Decision-Making (OUP).

About the book

The UN Security Council's transition to 'targeted sanctions' in the 1990s marked a revolutionary shift in the locus of the Council's decision-making from states to individuals. The establishment of the targeted sanctions regime, should be regarded as more than a shift in policy and invites attention to an emerging tier of international governance.

This book examines the need to develop a due process framework having regard to the uniquely political and crisis-based context in which the Security Council operates. Drawing on Anglo-American jurisprudence, this book develops procedural principles for the international institutional context using a value-based approach as an alternative to the formalistic approach taken in the literature to date. In doing so, it is recognized that due process is more than a set of discrete legal standards, but is a touchstone for the way the international legal order conceives of far larger questions about community, law and values.
