Chapter Summary

This chapter undertakes a modest exploration of three models of judicial tribunals that have been established in the aftermath of mass atrocity: international, 'mixed', and national tribunals. It outlines the establishment of a number of tribunals, their institutional design, and the extent to which those tribunals have succeeded in meeting the expectations of their different constituencies. Within the focus of the chapter, future tribunals must build on the experiences of existing tribunals, just as the latter have developed upon the lessons of their predecessors, if they are to play an effective role in securing justice after conflict.
