Abstract
Even if a court has jurisdiction over a case there might be some situation when that court will decline to exercise this jurisdiction. The reasons for declining jurisdiction will be different in different legal systems. A court might decline jurisdiction because it deems the case to be to inconvenient for the parties or the court or it might decline jurisdiction because the case is already pending in another court.

Different legal traditions look at jurisdiction differently and will as a result of this deal with the declining of jurisdiction differently. The different approaches of declining jurisdiction in the United States and in the European Union will be examined in this thesis.
Abstract (Swedish)
Även om en domstol har domsrätt över ett mål så kan det finnas skäl som gör att domstolen avstår från att utöva sin domsrätt. Vilka skäl som gör att en domstol avstår sin domsrätt är olika från rättssystem till rättssystem. En domstol kan avstå sin domsrätt eftersom den anser att målet är alltför orelaterat till domstolen eller eftersom det redan finns ett liknande mål som är pågående hos en annan domstol.

Olika rättssystem har olika syn på domsrätt och som ett resultat av detta kommer de behandla avstående av domsrätt på olika sätt. De olika synsätt mellan EU-rätt och amerikansk rät kommer att behandlas här.
