This Research Handbook provides a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of the international law of jurisdiction and immunities, illustrating those aspects in which the law of jurisdiction and law of immunities are mutually inter-dependent, and shedding light on the implications of that inter-dependence.

With authoritative contributions from recognised experts, it offers an impartial perspective on the applicable international law, independent from any positions held in governmental or other institutional circles.
