SMART SANCTIONS AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC SANCTIONS WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL LAW
Smart economic sanctions are the reaction of the international community and the United Nations to the bad results in respect of human rights brought by the traditional comprehensive international economic sanctions, and it is also a response to the bad economic results achieved by those sanctions. Smart economic sanctions are better than traditional economic sanctions with regard to moral legitimacy in terms of their respect. Also, smart economic sanctions have characteristics, the most important of which is that they do not involve in the middle stage harming innocent civilians, and they are more effective in terms of target and punishment, and they always seek to protect the weaker classes of society, such as women and children. Smart economic sanctions have types, the most important of which are financial, military, diplomatic, cultural and travel bans. Smart economic sanctions need to adhere to more criteria necessary for their success before we consider them to have outperformed traditional economic sanctions in terms of application.
