3. UNIJURIS Conference 18 June 2018. Since 2013, a research project has been run at Utrecht University on ‘unilateral jurisdiction and global values’ (UNIJURIS), headed by Prof. Cedric Ryngaert. The project will present its results at a conference in Utrecht on 18 June 2018. The project has systematically mapped and critically analysed assertions of state (and EU) jurisdiction with an extraterritorial dimension, from a public international law perspective. The project has examined jurisdictional assertions in a considerable number of issue areas, in particular fisheries, marine pollution, business and human rights, climate change, anti-corruption, data protection, and cybercrime. The eight researchers involved in the project will present their findings, after which academic experts and practitioners will comment.  See here for more information on the project. To attend, please register by emailing Secretariaat.IER {at} uu(.)nl. The conference takes place from 8:30-17:10 at Pauzhuize, Kromme Niewegracht 49, 3512 HE Utrecht.
