UNIJURIS Conference 18 June 2018: Unilateral Jurisdiction and Global Values
Since 2013, a research project has been run at Utrecht University on ‘unilateral jurisdiction and global values’ (UNIJURIS), headed by Prof. Cedric Ryngaert. The project will present its results at a conference in Utrecht on Monday 18 June 2018. The project has systematically mapped and critically analysed assertions of state (and EU) jurisdiction with an extraterritorial dimension, from a public international law perspective. The project has examined jurisdictional assertions in a considerable number of issue areas, in particular fisheries, marine pollution, business and human rights, climate change, anti-corruption, data protection, and cybercrime. The eight researchers involved in the project will present their findings, after which academic experts and practitioners will comment.
