Chapter 2 tracks the history of procedural reform in the Security Council sanctions context. It examines the gradual evolution of procedural standards in the UN sanctions regime, with particular attention to the development of listing, notification, reason-giving, and de-listing procedures. While important steps have been taken to improve the procedural framework accompanying sanctions decision-making, widespread dissatisfaction remains. The central focus of the reform debate has been on the choice of forum through which individuals might challenge sanctions decision-making and seek de-listing. This chapter examines the three competing procedural frameworks that have emerged in the reform debate: (1) an ‘international adjudicatory framework’ where a centralized judicial organ would review sanctions decision-making; (2) a ‘pluralist adjudicatory framework’, where domestic courts assume jurisdiction to review sanctions decision-making (‘pluralist adjudicatory framework’); (3) a ‘non-judicial Ombudsperson framework’ established by the Security Council in 2009.
