Chapter Summary

A tour of the Hague recalls historys ambitions for international courts. A less magnificent venue up the road houses the UN Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, established nine years ago to address the crimes of the Balkan wars. The Hague has now offered to take aboard yet a fourth tribunal, the so-called permanent International Criminal Court, created by a treaty agreement negotiated at Rome in 1998. The first Hague norm concerns discrimination safeguarding the distinction between military assets and civilian objects. The NATO alliance and other coalitions for peace enforcement will require practical standards for joint operations in the future. The recent German elections have once again taught that the use of political language requires care and attention. A tub-thumping phrase may rally the faithful but can also demonize good-faith differences in view and interfere with the working relationships important to allies.
