White paper on Targeted Sanctions
English, French, Spanish: http://www.un.org/Docs/journal/asp/ws.asp?m=A/60/887
According to a white paper by Watson Institute for International Studies of Brown University, "since the early 1990s, the United Nations has increasingly targeted sanctions to improve their effectiveness and reduce humanitarian costs. While targeted sanctions significantly improve upon comprehensive sanctions in reducing humanitarian impact, the move from sanctions against states to sanctions targeted against individuals and non-state entities has generated new issues, particularly regarding the rights and standing of parties that might be listed wrongly. While political and administrative in nature, targeted sanctions can affect peoples’ lives in a manner comparable to criminal proceedings."
This white paper has been transmitted by the commissioning governments as a UN document, A/60/887 - S/2006/331. According to the letter of transmittal, the governments of Switzerland, Germany and Sweden, "would like to make this document available to the General Assembly, as a contribution to the current deliberations on the follow-up to the outcome of the 2005 World Summit, and with the Security Council with a view to supporting the latter’s ongoing efforts to strengthen the instrument of targeted sanctions. The Watson Institute is responsible for the contents of the white paper. "
