Mapping Universal Jurisdiction

Prof. Dr. Florian Jeßberger leads the project 'Mapping Universal Jurisdiction - Dokumentation und Aufbereitung der nationalen Praxis universeller Jurisdiktion für die Lehre' ( 'Mapping Universal Jurisdiction: Documenting and Processing National Practise in Unviersal Jurisdiction for Use in Education')  at the University of Hamburg. Working on the basis of the Völkerstraf­gesetzbuch, the project marks the first comprehensive appraisal of universal jurisdiction to date. Its aim is to facilitate legal training in this area. The project will collect, classify and process all relevant decisions made by the German criminal prosecution service and criminal courts, and make them available in full text form.
