(p.1) 1 Introduction
The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia

Rachel Kerr (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the alleged ‘politicisation’ of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The UN Security Council established the ICTY on May 25, 1993 as a mechanism to restore and maintain international peace and security. Although its establishment was politically motivated, its internal mandate is to deliver justice. To be successful, the ICTY must walk the fine line between law and politics. An overview of the chapters included in this volume is presented.

Keywords:   International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, UN Security Council, international justice, international law, politics
