The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia: An Exercise in Law Politics and Diplomacy

Rachel Kerr

Abstract

This book examines the establishment, functions and significance of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. It sought an answer to whether the Tribunal could carry out its duties as an impartial judicial body, given that it was established for political purposes. It is argued that the external political function did not undermine the Tribunal’s status as an impartial judicial body, but rather enhanced its effectiveness.

Keywords: International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, international law, justice, politicisation
