This chapter examines the balancing of diplomatic, political, and judicial roles in the operation of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. It presents the legal framework for international cooperation and judicial assistance, and discusses the various levels at which cooperation occurs in practice. It argues that nature and extent of cooperation depends on political will. In its early years, the Tribunal had difficulty obtaining political, diplomatic, and logistic support from the very governments that voted for its establishment. The situation has improved over time, notably following the completion of a peace agreement for Bosnia.
