Chapter Summary

This chapter provides concluding comments focusing on the precedents of international trials. The Statutes of the ad hoc Tribunals and Rules as amended constitute a significant improvement in the field of due process of law when compared to the guarantees of the defendants at the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials. The International Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) created and developed an unprecedented jurisprudence in the field of international humanitarian law. The Tribunals achieved remarkable results in the elaboration of an international criminal procedure which for the most part takes account of the developments in the field of international human rights. The shortcomings of the Tribunals as a system for international criminal prosecution assisted to a significant degree to prevent their repetition in the context of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Keywords: ICTY; International Criminal Court (ICC); International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR); international humanitarian law; Nuremberg trials; Tokyo trials
