Rule of Law Symposium: does the rule of law apply to sanctions

Wednesday 8 November 2023

This panel discussion will delve into the potential tension between targeted sanctions and the rule of law. The panel will explore the opaque process of imposing sanctions, the limited access to legal representation for those affected by sanctions, and the hindrances to conducting legal proceedings in the presence of sanctions. The discussion will question whether these measures align with the principles of fairness and due process, essential elements of the rule of law.
