Sample text

Both through the Kadi judgments and through Iran and Syria sanctions, the EU is asserting a ‘new order’ of its own whereby it attempts liberating itself from the legal order of the UN Charter that is supposed to constrain the EU, if for no other reason, by virtue of creating the normatively superior legal obligations for the EU Member States. The EU’s powers are thus set against the UN’s monopoly of coercion in a manner practically indistinguishable from the way Carl Schmitt saw the struggle between competing orders of the Versailles Treaty-based League of Nations and Germany’s revisionist aspirations.

Nakanishi level demonstrates how seriously it sought to mitigate conflict with the P5 plus 1 and to gain some easing of the economic sanctions. Though it is unclear where this confidence building process will lead, all negotiating parties acknowledged the plan as a landmark deal. What enabled this breakthrough to happen? Some scholars have argued that the impact of economic sanctions was immense enough for Iran’s regime to compromise, and others view that the change of Iran’s President from Ahmadinejad to Rouhani was a decisive factor, as the new administration is better equipped with a more competitive nuclear negotiation team.

However, it is unclear on what basis the EU could have standing, for it is difficult to identify the initial wrongful act committed by Iran against the EU. Iran’s breach of the 1968 NPT has not been plausibly established, and neither the IAEA nor the UNSC have so far definitively pronounced on that issue. Nor could the EU be seen as an injured party in relation to Iran’s breach of the Safeguards Agreements,41 because these are operative as between Iran and the IAEA. Thus, general international law could provide no legitimating basis for the EU measures.
