This Comment addresses the limitations in international law enforcement issues and the vulnerability of civilian passengers during international travel, which arose after the crash of Korean Airline Flight 007. The author argues that existing enforcement schemes leave much to be desired and that, while the use of economic sanctions is a common thread among various international tribunals, the piecemeal application of such sanctions are rarely effective and often prohibitively burdensome on the imposing parties. The author proposes several new multilateral economic enforcement schemes, which hope to balance the interest of national security with safe international travel.
