Extraterritorial application of the European sanctions

The proposed project aims at analysing EU sanctions regimes against the background of an increasing tendency of states to adopt multiple sanctions regimes ¿ including extraterritorial regimes ¿ as a reaction under international law to the commission of wrongful acts by other actors.
Today, this issue is discussed from many other standpoints as it raises political, institutional and economic issues in addition to legal problems that concern basically the legitimacy and the legal consequences of those collective and unilateral measures.
The present research mainly focuses on the specific practice of EU sanction systems and the double role of this practice that promotes both international security broadly speaking and the common values of the European Union. To this end, the European system needs to be compared with the same instruments adopted at the international level by the United Nations, as well as at domestic level by the United States, in order to answer the main questions raised by this contemporary legal issue.
