Decision-Making in International Criminal Tribunals

Decision-Making in International Criminal Tribunals

(p.278) 26 Decision-Making in International Criminal Tribunals
The Making of International Criminal Justice

Theodor Meron

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on decision-making in the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and, in particular, on the context in which, and processes by which, decisions are reached at the Tribunals. In identifying factors of particular import to decision-making at the Tribunals, the chapter highlights four specific issues: the uniqueness of the Tribunals; the diversity of decision-makers at the Tribunals, including judges, the President, and the Registrar; the diverse backgrounds of the Tribunals' judges and staff; and the ways in which judicial decisions are reached at the Tribunals. Each of these issues are addressed in turn as well as certain broader conclusions concerning the nature of decision-making at the Tribunals.

Keywords:   decision-making, former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, diverse backgrounds
