Chapter Summary

Gender based and sexual crimes against women are an important part of the jurisprudence of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). This jurisprudence has been driven mostly by the female judges on the bench. This chapter focuses on cases from the ICTR and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The prosecution of rape before international courts is new, and the Rwanda Tribunal has been at the forefront, with Judge Navi Pillay as a forerunner. Judge Pillay's contributions have also been important in many other areas but the author focuses on the sexual related crimes.
