9780199688517_140The second edition of the ‘Jurisdiction in International Law’ book by Prof. Cedric Ryngaert has been published by Oxford University Press. The book examines the international law of jurisdiction, focusing on the areas of law where jurisdiction is most contentious: criminal, antitrust, securities, discovery, and international humanitarian and human rights law. This fully updated second edition has been fully revised and updated to include new materials on personal jurisdiction, cyberspace, and covering new developments in sanction laws, tax law, transnational tort litigation and universal civil jurisdiction; provides a general theory of jurisdiction in international law; contains analysis cuts across controversial legal fields, including antitrust and criminal law, helping scholars and practitioners to devise underlying jurisdictional arguments in specific areas of law and presents a transatlantic perspective aiming to unify the approach to jurisdiction in the EU and US in transnational litigation.

New to this edition are new material about personal jurisdiction in the US, as well as the concept of jurisdiction in human rights law, specifically extraterritorial application of HR treaties; discussions on cyberspace and ‘territorial extension’ of domestic regulatory law via market-based measures; a discussion of the landmark Morrison case and updated developments in sanction laws and tax law, as well as further exploration on transnational tort litigation and universal civil jurisdiction.
