Terrorism — International co-operation — Expropriation — High seas — Jurisdiction of states, extra-territorial

When a state establishes its criminal jurisdiction over a particular transnational crime, that prescription renders a particular action potentially criminal. To have a concrete effect, that jurisdiction once established must be enforced through investigation and trial of the particular offence. This chapter explores the state’s jurisdiction over transnational crime through the work of its law enforcement agencies, and focuses in particular on law enforcement cooperation with other states because of the inherent difficulties of extraterritorial law enforcement. It covers both police cooperation and other forms of mutual assistance in administrative matters which have an investigative and crime prevention function.
