Abstract

International law on jurisdiction is a quagmire of gaps, inconsistencies and exaggerated reliance on
outdated sources of law ill-equipped for modern society. The focus on the territorial vs
extraterritorial dichotomy is misguided and harmful, and the territoriality principle is not
appropriate as the jurisprudential foundation of jurisdiction.
This paper argues that the traditional categorisation of three types of jurisdiction needs to be
amended or reconsidered. It also advances an alternative jurisprudential framework for jurisdiction
– applicable for both public, and private, international law – consisting of three core principles.
Further, it brings attention to a selection of novel concepts, including: ‘jurisdictional
interoperability’, ‘bite’ vs. ‘bark’ jurisdiction, ‘scope of jurisdiction’, and ‘lagom jurisdiction’.
