Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the juxtaposition of modern peacekeeping. It discusses the proliferation of international criminal liabilities for peacekeepers within modern peace support operations while also focussing on the potential criminal exonerations of those peacekeepers. The chapter then looks at various instances in which the principle of ne bis in idem can become relevant in the context of international criminal law. It explores the ways in which the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), and Special Panels employed various different forms of plea bargaining. Next, it also examines the sentencing practice of international tribunals. Finally, the chapter outlines a theory of victims? rights, reviewing the historical evolution of the concept and elucidating recent developments, and argues for a strengthening of current victims? rights norms.

Keywords: ICTY; international criminal law; international criminal liabilities; International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR); modern peacekeeping; ne bis in idem; plea bargaining; sentencing practice; theory of victims? rights
