Indiana University, 2004 - Economic sanctions - 500 pages
0 Reviews
Discusses the effects that human rights groups (i.e. Mennonite Central Committee, Pastors for Peace, Washington Office on Latin America, All People's Congress, etc.) can have on foreign policy decisions, and the repercussions of U.S. foreign policy upon those groups if they choose to violate sanctions by giving humanitarian aid to targeted counties. The primary focus is the Cuban embargo; however, the historical context of embargoes against Iraq and South Africa is also examined regarding humanitarian groups and other countries violating U.N. imposed sanctions.
