Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses how international law has approached bringing alleged international criminals to justice post-conflict. It reviews the activities of the various tribunals established since 1990 to prosecute the crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Kosovo, East Timor, Cambodia and Iraq, as well as considering the future role of the International Criminal Court. In response to the crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, the Security Council established the two ad hoc tribunals in 1993 and 1994, respectively. A hybrid tribunal has been established for Sierra Leone; one was originally planned for Cambodia to deal with the past history of atrocities, but that particular tribunal never came to fruition. Cambodia first asked the United Nations in 1997 about establishing a court akin to the ICTY/ICTR to try Khmer Rouge leaders for the crimes committed between 1975 and 1979.
