Universal Jurisdiction allows the claim of criminal jurisdiction by an international entity over an accused person regardless of where the alleged crime was committed and regardless of the nationality of the accused, country of residence, or other relation with the prosecuting entity.

In short, crimes prosecuted under universal jurisdiction are considered crimes against the human family (torture, genocide, etc.) that are too serious to tolerate jurisdictional arbitrage (seeking asylum to a more favorable jurisdiction).
