Abstract and Keywords

This concluding chapter discusses jurisdiction and international territorial administration. Such territorial administration regimes have been created where international organizations or states collectively have had to step in to stabilize or reconstruct a particular country or region, and this kind of administration creates a very distinctive and complex environment for jurisdiction. The chapter then explores five different aspects of jurisdiction in relation to these administrations. First, it looks at the basis on which these bodies might assert jurisdiction over a territory and its people. Second, it examines how this jurisdiction can be exercised within the domestic legal systems of these territories. Third, it investigates jurisdiction over international crimes, which may be shared between different international bodies. Fourth, it considers the impact of international organizations’ immunities on jurisdiction, including, fifth, their significance for human rights jurisdiction.

Keywords: international courts, international tribunals, jurisdiction, statehood, jurisdiction of states, organs of states, international law, territoriality, immunities, human rights
