Chapter Summary

A decade and a half after the establishment of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), we are now fast approaching the day when these institutions will close their doors. At the height of activity, between the ICTY and ICTR there were 36 full-time trial judges, 18 considered to be 'permanent' and 18 described as 'ad litem,' plus eight permanent appeals judges, for a total of 44. There have also been the significant prosecutions undertaken outside both the international courts and the national courts of the countries where the crimes were committed. These have usually involved accused perpetrators who have taken refuge in third countries or situations where nationals of third countries were among the victims of the crimes. The most famous of these prosecutions occurred in 1998, the year so often cited for historic developments in international justice.
