The Internet's most comprehensive body of sanctions evidentiary material is at CASI, the website of a Cambridge University organizataion.

CASI's repository is high-minded, reliable, and fair. It includes links to original sources wherever possible, and includes material from all sides of the sanctions debate. As its name implies, CASI (the Campaign Against Sanctions in Iraq) opposes economic sanctions. However, it's a tribute to the group's rigor and fairness that Saudis, Kuwaitis, and Kurds participate comfortably in its discussions.

  • General works on economic sanctions on Iraq
  • The Humanitarian Impact of Sanctions
  • The Iraqi Economy
  • The Debate over "Smart sanctions"
  • The Oil-for-Food Programme
  • Security Council policy on Iraq and the Sanctions Committee
  • The International Law of Sanctions

  • Iraq's relations with other States since 1991
  • The Iraqi military and disarmament
  • The Iraqi opposition movements and the Kurdish region
  • Depleted Uranium Poisoning and "Gulf War Syndrome"

    CASI's webmasters accumulate material with an eye toward contemporary argument, and also historical judgement. It's a laudable work.
