Abstract

This article proposes an analytic framework to understand the evolution of the ICTY's relationship to the domestic courts of the Former-Yugoslavia. It finds that the purported primacy of the ICTY is gradually incorporating elements of the "complementarity" regime characteristic of the ICC.

Keywords: International criminal tribunal, ICTY, international criminal tribunal for the former-Yugoslavia, ICTR, international criminal justice, former-yugoslavia, war crimes, primacy, complementarity
