Through the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the United States has implemented a range of global sanctions regimes (focused on such national interests as counter-terrorism and narcotics trafficking) alongside about a dozen country-specific regimes, some of which have a human rights component (e.g., in Syria). However, the United States has no global sanctions regime devoted to atrocities prevention. This project has analyzed existing regimes (US, EU, UN), identified gaps in reach, and proposed language for a new Executive Order creating a global targeted sanctions regime aimed at individuals who foment, perpetuate, or enable mass violence.
