What are UN sanctions regimes for? And why are they only sometimes imposed in response to “threats to the peace” and other times not? My PhD research tries to answer this question by analyzing the track record of UN sanctions in response to 5 major sanctionable offences: nuclear proliferation (3/5) interstate wars (2/4), civil wars (26/58), terrorism (26/88), and coups d’état (3/36). Papers, articles, and blog-posts related to my research can be found throughout this blog, as well as through think tanks and journals.

Below you can find the latest update of the Sanctionable Offences Database that serves as the methodological backbone of my research on UN sanctions regimes since 1990.

For any papers or publications that make use of this dataset, users are asked to refer to the Sanctionable Offences Dataset as follows:
