Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews the creation of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, its structure and mandate, and its achievements. It focuses on France's position in relation to the creation and the operations of the tribunal, and in particular on the interference of French national and international politics with judiciary exigencies. The chapter considers the events leading to the Srebrenica massacre, the United Nations report on this event and the report of the French Parliamentary Commission to assess the role of France in relation with the Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia, followed by a brief reference to two Dutch reports on Srebrenica. The Security Council adopted resolution 808 on 22 February 1993 and resolution 827 on 25 May 1993. The Srebrenica massacre and its aftermath have raised difficult questions for the French authorities, for France itself, and for its relationship with the Tribunal.
