This chapter distinguishes the two types of European sanctions against individuals and places them in the international legal context. It briefly discusses the Security Council resolutions that led to the adoption of European sanctions against individuals. It introduces the adoption procedure and the different regulatory measures used to adopt sanctions against individuals in the EU. It further places individual sanctions in the context of other counter-terrorist policies at the international, European, and national level. Finally, the chapter introduces differing assessments of the effectiveness of counter-terrorist sanctions against individuals.
