The UN Security Council's special compliance systems : the regime of children and armed conflict
Inducing compliance with international humanitarian law : lessons from the African Great Lakes Region
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2015
Focusing on the regime on children and armed conflict, Regina Klostermann analyses the role of the UN Security Council in enforcing the pertinent international norms, in particular through imposing targeted sanctions. On the basis of an interdisciplinary approach, she arrives at the conclusion that the Security Council's special compliance system for children and armed conflict is a promising step towards inducing compliance since it basically fulfils the requirements that political theory has identified as motives for compliance, namely coercion, self-interest and legitimacy.
