Extraterritoriality in East Asia examines the approaches of China, Japan and South Korea to exercising legal authority over crimes committed outside their borders, known as ‘extraterritorial jurisdiction’. It considers themes of justiciability and approaches to international law, as well as relevant examples of legislation and judicial decision-making, to offer a deeper understanding of the topic from the perspective of this legally, politically and economically significant region.

Beginning with a foundational overview of the principles of jurisdiction in international law as well as identifying current challenges to those principles, chapters then analyse the ways in which extraterritorial jurisdiction operates and is regulated in China, Japan and South Korea respectively. Danielle Ireland-Piper contextualizes contemporary issues within a historical narrative of each country, exploring areas of convergence and divergence between them and the relationships between domestic and international law in the region.

This book will be of particular interest to scholars and students of comparative, criminal, constitutional and international law, as well as international relations, especially in the context of East Asia. Law-makers and practitioners such as criminal lawyers and prosecutors will also find its contemporary analysis useful.
