    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för freds- och konfliktforskning

    Author : Rebecca Dawson; [2020]
    Keywords : Social Network Analysis; Diffusion; Universal Jurisdiction;

    Abstract : Universal Jurisdiction (UJ) emerged as a norm in international post-conflict justice after the Nuremberg Trials and is based on the principle that the nature of certain crimes is of greater importance than the nationality of the perpetrator, the location of the crime or any direct connection to the prosecuting state.
