UN sanctions, do they work?

As the UN Security Council discusses possible targeted sanctions against Iran, the governments of Switzerland, Germany and Sweden submitted a report from the Watson Institute for International Studies. This report, "Strengthening Targeted Sanctions Through Fair and Clear Procedures" provides an analysis of some of the current sanctions in place by the United Nations and also gives some recommendations for future sanctions. The governments submitted this report "as a contribution to the current deliberations on the follow-up to the outcome of the 2005 World Summit, and with the Security Council with a view to supporting the latter’s ongoing efforts to strengthen the instrument of targeted sanctions."
