Abstract

Invoking the name of Janus, the Roman god who looked simultaneously at the past and the future, this article examines international criminal justice at a watershed moment, when a number of 20-year-old ad hoc tribunals were winding down even as the International Criminal Court was entering its teen years. First explored are challenges posed by politics – that is, the need to secure cooperation from states and from the U.N. Security Council – and economics – that is, the need to work within budgetary constraints. The article then surveys significant developments in each of a half-dozen international criminal courts and tribunals.

Keywords: International Criminal Court, International Criminal Law, International Criminal Justice, Cambodia Tribunal, Yugoslavia Tribunal, Lebanon Tribunal, Rwanda Tribunal, Special Court for Sierra Leone
