    Hey all, am in the midst of writing an essay on jurisdiction in international criminal law. I've looked at the basics--Shaw, Harris's Cases and Materials, the Harvard Draft. Most recent articles seem to deal with universal jurisdiction, which is of course of immense interest, and will probably occupy the focus of most of my essay. Territorial jurisdiction is straight-forward, and protective jurisdiction doesn't seem to pose particular problems. I am struggling to find case law in point on passive personality and nationality-based jurisdiction. Joyce v DPP seems partly in point on nationality-based (though that case is also about protective jurisdiction, and in any case it's somewhat anomalous). The Lotus case wasn't decided on passive personality. Any suggestions for good articles or cases on these heads of jurisdiction? At the moment I'm chiefly interested in prescriptive rather than enforcement jurisdiction. Cheers, everyone!
