(p.85) 5 A Model Based on Accuracy
The Power of Process

Chapter 5 examines an instrumentalist model of due process in the Security Council sanctions setting. This model is supported by a court-based or international adjudicatory procedural framework. A number of institutional features of the Security Council would severely compromise the capacity of the instrumentalist model to deliver enhanced legitimacy in Security Council sanctions decision-making. The connection between normative models of procedural fairness and conceptions of community, law, and values reveals that the choice of procedural framework for the sanctions setting impacts at a broader level. The adoption of an instrumentalist model would serve to solidify a classical conception of the international legal order. Adoption of an instrumentalist model and associated adjudicatory framework in the Security Council context would: (a) entrench a narrow conception of international community as confined to nation states; (b) give judges an inflated role in international law-making; and (c) have a stagnating effect on the international value system.
