How to use "Exterritorial" in context?
"exterritorial" is a term used in international law to refer to a territory outside of the jurisdiction of the state in which it is located. In general, states have jurisdiction over their territorial boundaries. However, under certain circumstances, a state may allow another state to have jurisdiction over a territory within its borders. This is generally done in order to permit the administration of justice in that territory. In some cases, a territory may be considered to be extraterritorial simply because it is situated outside of the territory of the state in which it is located. This is particularly common in cases where a territory is located on the border of two or more states.
