This seminar is part of the Institute's seminar series State Jurisdiction in a Global Environment: Rethinking Extraterritoriality. The series aims to shed a modern light on this age-old discussion about States' prerogative to regulate conduct taking place outside their territory and the constraints imposed by international law. Focusing on recent developments in areas such as competition law, human rights, criminal law, financial and corporate law, investment law, internet law, each lecture will address one specific instance of extraterritorial application and enforcement of laws, the challenges that such application/enforcement raise and the possible mechanisms that may be put in place to meet such challenges. The series will continue throughout 2007.
