Rahman Ravelli has contributed one of the expert analysis chapters to the just-published International Comparative Legal Guide - Sanctions 2023.
Their chapter, entitled “The New EU Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime’’, examines the European Union’s sanctions framework. The chapter explains the legal tools involved in the framework’s creation, how it functions, its significance and how it compares with other human rights legislation.
Rahman Ravelli detail how the EU Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime is in line with the EU Action Plan on Human Rights and Democracy which was approved by the EU Council four years ago.
They say that the regime emphasises that the promotion and protection of human rights is a cornerstone of the EU’s external action. According to Rahman Ravelli, it forms part of a wider political dialogue and reflects the EU’s determination to enhance its role in addressing serious human rights violations and abuses.
Rahman Ravelli's chapter concludes by summarising the arguments for and against adding corruption to the scope of the regime.
