Abstract:Chapter VII of the United Nations' Charter accords the Security Council powers of enforcement, under prescribed conditions, against States that have breached provisions of the Charter. Article 41 pertains to the employment of measures not involving the use of force, which may include the complete or partial interruption of economic relations and of rail, sea, air, postal, telegraphic, radio and other means of communication, and the severance of diplomatic relations. The present article first examines the general practice of implementing article 41 and then explores the use of economic sanctions against the former government of South Africa. Notes, ref.
