Chapter Summary

The revival of international criminal law in our times has provided one of the most studied disciplines in contemporary international law. The Statute for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia ("ICTY"), for instance, provides (in Article 15) the judges of the tribunal with the power to devise rules of procedure and evidence for the conduct of the tribunal's work, whereas the Statute itself only lays down general principles. The importation of subpoena powers into the practice of international criminal law still requires some time to convince States in general to accept it as part of the law. The substantive part of the law seems to be an area where multiculturalism has only a modest impact, due to the fact that this part of the law has been formulated mainly by way of treaty.

Keywords: ICTY; international criminal law; international law; multiculturalism; subpoena powers
