This chapter takes a practical and principled look into the future, exploring whether and how individual sanctions could lawfully and legitimately be adopted under European law. The chapter is structured as follows. Section 1 examines how autonomous sanctions against individuals could be adopted in compliance with procedural rights. Section 2 considers procedural protection from European sanctions giving effect to UN lists. Section 3 addresses the necessary level of judicial control over individual sanctions. It considers the role of the judiciary in determining the line that separates lawful counter-terrorist measures from unjustifiable human rights restrictions. Section 4 discusses the proportionality of individual sanctions.
