About Economic Sanctions in EU Private International Law

Economic sanctions are an instrument of foreign policy. They may, however, affect the legal relations between private parties – first of all in contract. In such a case, the court or arbitration tribunal seized has to decide whether to give effect or not to the economic sanction.

It is private international law that functions as a 'filter' and transmits economic sanctions having a public law origin to the realm of private law. The aim of this book is to examine how private international law rules can influence the enforcement of economic sanctions and the related foreign policy objectives.

A coherent EU foreign policy position – as well as legal certainty and predictability – would suppose a uniform approach not only concerning the economic sanctions of the EU, but also with regard to the restrictive measures imposed by third countries. However, if we examine in detail the application of economic sanctions by the courts of the Member States and arbitral tribunals, we find a somewhat different picture. It will become obvious, this book argues, that one of the reasons for this is the divergence of the private international law approaches in the Member States.
