Resumo

This paper focuses on universal criminal jurisdiction in western European countries. Although the International Criminal Court has facilitated some compliance with the Statute of Rome 1998, some European countries have been criticised for placing restrictive conditions on the exercise of this jurisdiction. However, with the Syrian Conflict and the emergence of terrorist groups, universal jurisdiction has again been proposed to prosecute war crimes and crimes against humanity by perpetrators who have sought asylum in Europe.

O presente artigo analisa a jurisdição penal universal nos países da Europa Ocidental. Embora o Tribunal Penal Internacional tenha facilitado o cumprimento do Estatuto de Roma de 1998, alguns países europeus têm sido criticados por colocarem condições restritivas ao exercício dessa jurisdição. No entanto, com o conflito sírio e a emergência de grupos terroristas, a jurisdição universal foi novamente utilizada para julgar crimes de guerra e crimes contra a humanidade cometidos por perpetradores que procuraram asilo na Europa.
