The purpose of Subverting Sanctions: How Human Rights and International Law have been Violated is to demonstrate the human rights dimensions of sanctions in the sample countries and to argue a legal framework necessary to bring a lawsuit against the US on the basis of flagrant violation of human rights. Mass human rights violations resulting from the past sanctions includes denial of access to health and medical services for citizens. Today riots and even civil war are arguably part of the goals of such sanctions.
