Chapter Summary

This paper seeks to raise questions about the objectives or goals of international criminal justice, and whether recent trends are inhibiting the ability of investigators and prosecutors to achieve those objectives or goals through the application of carefully considered prosecutorial policies. It first examines the prosecutorial strategies of the two ad hoc International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda (ICTR), and then follows the recent efforts at limiting prosecutorial direction. The negotiations to establish additional courts and tribunals since 2000 have been overshadowed by pervasive cost-related considerations, which have greatly influenced the types of mechanisms or institutions which have emerged.
