Chapter Summary

The end of the Cold War, which paralyzed the United Nations from its inception, was a cause for celebration and hope. In response to the deteriorating human rights situation in the former Yugoslavia, the UN Commission on Human Rights was called into its first ever special session, during which it adopted resolution 1992/S-1/1 on 14 August 1992, requesting the Chairman of the Commission to appoint a special rapporteur to investigate first hand the human rights situation in the territory of the former Yugoslavia, in particular within Bosnia and Herzegovina. The specific provisions of the ICTY Statute reflect the influence of the Nuremberg Charter, drafts of the International Criminal Court statute, and proposals of various countries,18 all of which were considered in drafting the ICTY Statute.
