Critical Acclaim
‘A timely and comprehensive examination of one of the classical topics – really a set of different but related topics – in international law.’
– Marko Milanovic, University of Reading School of Law, UK

‘Extraterritoriality in international law is elusive – found in a multitude of discrete practices in different areas, with no clear overarching frame and little sustained, cross-cutting analysis. This Research Handbook takes us a major step further in understanding the phenomenon. Wide-ranging both in terms of geography and issue areas, it is a treasure trove for anyone interested in the practices of extraterritoriality – and in questions about jurisdiction in international law more generally.’
– Nico Krisch, Geneva Graduate Institute, Switzerland

‘This volume’s contributors have brought a wealth of expertise and a wide range of disciplinary and regional perspectives to bear in illuminating the complex dynamics of extraterritoriality. The book will be a tremendous resource for anyone interested in the theory and practice of extraterritoriality.’
– Hannah Buxbaum, Indiana University, US
