Universal Jurisdiction: ‘Each to Their Own Jurisdiction’?
Presented by Elies van Sliedregt
Increasingly international crimes are investigated and prosecuted by national prosecutors before domestic courts. The prosecution of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide is, however, complex. This is especially the case when done on the basis of universal jurisdiction (UJ) where offences have (allegedly) been committed by non-nationals abroad. Elies van Sliedregt will discuss some poignant domestic cases of international crimes prosecution and highlight controversies around the exercise UJ.
