“The call for strategic litigation to strengthen the application of universal jurisdiction through careful and thorough selection of cases is underpinned by a theoretical construction that looks beyond individual interests in punishing a perpetrator in a particular case. (...) Legal successes might not be achieved, but a professionally conducted, transnational, and interdisciplinary universal jurisdiction case might be an important element in the struggle to end impunity and protect human rights.” Wolfgang Kaleck
