Selfless Intervention

The Exercise of Jurisdiction in the Common Interest

Cedric Ryngaert

  • Demonstrates how the purpose of the law of jurisdiction can shift from protecting national interests to furthering international concerns
  • Unpacks three fundamental concepts of international law: jurisdiction, sovereignty, and territoriality
  • Applies the theory of selfless intervention to four case studies regarding the protection of the environment (including the marine environment and climate change), business and human rights, and data protection
