|United Nations Security Council Resolutions|
Under Chapter VII of the Charter, the Security Council can take enforcement measures to maintain or restore international peace and security. Such measures range from economic and/or other sanctions not involving the use of armed force to international military action.
The use of mandatory sanctions is intended to apply pressure on a State or entity to comply with the objectives set by the Security Council without resorting to the use of force. Sanctions have included comprehensive economic and trade sanctions as well as more targeted measures such as arms embargoes, travel bans, and financial or diplomatic restrictions. Increasingly, sanctions have been targeted directly to individuals or specific political actors rather than to States as a whole. Targeted sanctions, for instance, can involve the freezing of assets and blocking the financial transactions of political elites or entities whose behaviour triggered sanctions in the first place.
Currently the United Nations Security Council imposes sanctions measures on, or relating to, the following States or entities (all links to United Nations Security Council):
