Extraterritorial Criminalisation and Non-intervention: Sweden’s Criminal Measures against the Purchase of Sex Abroad

2019 (English)In: Nordic Journal of International Law, ISSN 0902-7351, E-ISSN 1571-8107, Vol. 88, no 3, p. 398-428Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article considers the limits of extraterritorial criminalisation under international law in the context of a recent legislative proposal by the government of Sweden to impose criminal measures against the purchase of sexual services abroad. The article first presents the proposal and then a specific legal objection raised against it, namely that allowing Swedish courts to try purchases committed abroad irrespective of local law is inconsistent with the principle of non-intervention under international law. The substance of this objection is discussed against the background of general descriptions of the concepts of jurisdiction and non-intervention under international law. It is concluded that the meaning of the principle of non-intervention may have been overstated.
