Abstract

Following the establishment of ad hoc tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda in 1993 and 1994, and the adoption in 1998 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, much has been written on the history and the future of international criminal law. The present chapter focuses on the specific questions of whether individual criminal responsibility should be pursued as part of the resolution to a conflict, and the extent to which the international community can and should be involved in any such proceedings.

Keywords: transitional justice, war crimes, international criminal tribunal, victor's justice, peace
