Transformations in Criminal Jurisdiction

Transformations in Criminal Jurisdiction

Extraterritoriality and Enforcement

Edited by Micheál Ó Floinn, Lindsay Farmer, Julia Hörnle and David Ormerod KC

This book, based on a series of papers presented at the 2021 WG Hart Legal Workshop, asks how the concept of jurisdiction can meet the challenges posed by transnational dimensions of criminal offences today.

Part 1 looks at theoretical perspectives on criminal jurisdiction and how traditional jurisdictional concepts and understandings are being challenged, transformed, and reimagined in the era of the internet, cloud computing and social media. Part 2 homes in on the investigative powers of the state, to explore how these practical issues can inform the continuing transformation of current challenges.
