GLOBAL HUMAN RIGHTS SANCTIONS MAPPING MAGNITSKY LAWS – THE US, CANADIAN, UK AND EU APPROACH

On 16 November, the EU Parliament Research Service published a briefing paper which compares 4 such programmes: the US Global Magnitsky Act, Canada’s Sergei Magnitsky Law, the UK’s Global Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Regulations, and the EU’s restrictive measures against serious human rights violations and abuses, the most recent of the 4 to be adopted. All of these are inspired by the ambition to tackle serious human rights crimes from around the world, but there are also significant differences, for example, in terms of the threshold for human rights offences, the inclusion or not of corruption-related offences, and the role played by parliaments and civil society.
