Abstract

Today we commemorate International Criminal Justice Day to honor the 1998 adoption of the Rome Statute, the treaty that created the International Criminal Court (ICC), the world’s first permanent international war crimes tribunal. This year we should take the opportunity to reflect on various transitions in transitional justice. With the recent closure, creation, and consideration of several ad hoc war crimes tribunals, this year marks an unusual historical period.

Keywords: Transitional Justice, International Justice, International Law, International Criminal Law, War Crimes Tribunals, International Criminal Court, ICC, UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, ICTR, Rwanda, Rwandan Genocide, Extraordinary African Chambers, Senegal, Chad, Nuremberg Tribunal
