The Ideal and the Reality
This chapter argues that the extent and severity of atrocities and the ICTY's limited time and resources appear to require the involvement of the local criminal justice system to address the widespread and systematic scale of violence that occurred during the war in the former Yugoslavia. Experts have criticized the local judicial systems for their lack of independence, incompetence, and corruption. Yet, respondents show increasing confidence in their local courts. It seems that there is a predictable sequence to international efforts to restore a sense of domestic criminal justice, and that, ultimately, settings and persons who have experienced major crimes against their people will wish to reclaim an indigenous role in the restoration of locally experienced justice.
