The issue of jurisdiction has moved to the centre of international politics and international law. Globalization, electronic communications and ever-increasing levels of interdependence, have intensified the struggle between states for exclusive competence to make and apply law to the events central to their political economies. At the same time, the traditional criterion according to which states may make and apply law to events within their territory, does not work when so many events within the territory of one state have major impacts on the political economy of another. Assembled in this volume are fourteen important articles that explain jurisdiction in international law, historically and in contemporary perspective. The introductory essay locates these articles in a context of international law and highlights the policy problems that will be of future significance.
