A Preview on the Extent of Universal Jurisdiction Application

Amal Najem Alselmi


For those states that have accepted the concept, the principle of universal jurisdiction arising from the fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 is a code that empowers the national courts to have authority over cases of crimes against humanity in their specific countries. The principle has been the subject of divisive issues relating to various aspects of international law, including concerns regarding its authenticity as well as how this principle should be implemented.This study’s significance stems from its review of the code of universal jurisdiction, whether it has to be abandoned or not, and whether it ought to be moderately applied. Nevertheless, this study bridges the gap of understanding on the extent of the submission to universal jurisdiction, and whether it is fully or partially applied or on the path to being abandoned. It also seeks to assess the applicability of universal jurisdiction.
