Chapter Summary

After the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials, a second generation of international criminal justice developed in an extremely diverse manner, with the Tribunals for Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia, followed by the International Criminal Court (ICC) and a series of hybrid institutions. This chapter discusses some reflections on the establishment of the Court, its unique character as an international organization, its place in the international criminal law community, and comparisons of the statutes of the two ad hoc Tribunals with that of the ICC. It refers to its historical background and elements from the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. The Statutes of the ICTY and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda ('ICTR') were established by the United Nations Security Council on the basis of Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations.
