Collaborative report on use of sanctions as a human rights instrument and effectiveness of sanctions against Russia


A report published on 26 October 2023 outlines the increasing use of sanctions as a tool for protecting human rights, while highlighting the gaps in enforcement of sanctions against Russia, with a focus primarily on Europe. The report is a collaborative product by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee and risk analysis company Corisk, with contributions from Wikborg Rein and consultancy agency Rud Pedersen.

We are proud to have contributed to this important report, which seeks to highlight gaps in practical enforcement and legal frameworks, while providing recommendations to policymakers to enhance the effectiveness of their sanctions frameworks going forward.
