DuPont, Scott Craig
"Cruising for a bruising": Criminal jurisdiction aboard cruise ships
M.P.P., Regent University, 2003, 57 pages

This study is an attempt to support two theories. The first theory is that there is a problem with crime on cruise ships because countries are not required to prosecute this type of crime, and there is a lack of uniform law. The second theory is that the issue of jurisdiction can be extremely complicated because of the various countries that can be involved.
