This chapter examines the adjudicatory jurisdiction over multilateral enterprises (MNE) in the U.S. and the European Union. It mentions Professor Ian Brownlie's opinion that the principle of ‘substantial or effective connection’ with forum state would be an appropriate basis for jurisdiction in cases involving MNE. The chapter suggests that jurisdictional conflicts created by the operations of MNE can be minimized by notification and consultation among states, and by the use of existing international agreements designed to minimize friction arising over assertion of extraterritorial jurisdiction.

Keywords: multilateral enterprises; adjudicatory jurisdiction; U.S.; European Union; Ian Brownlie; jurisdictional conflict; extraterritorial jurisdiction
