Abstract: The first chapter summarizes the international obligations for a State to provide for a universal jurisdiction for the punishment of crimes relating to international humanitarian law. The second chapter describes the Belgian Genocide Law of June 16, 1993, its subsequent changes, the international pressure it was subject to, and its replacement by the much less farreaching law of August 5, 2003. The third chapter discusses the proceedings directed against this law of August 5, 2003, focusing on the dispute between the Court of Cassation and the Constitutional Court regarding the hierarchy between international treaties and national Constitutions. The fourth chapter provides some suggestions for a well-balanced form of universal jurisdiction.
