The Milošević Trial

Klaus Bachmann

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the factors that contributed to the deterioration of the ICTY's public image during the Milošević trial and the choices that media outlets made based on those factors. It identifies two dominant frames in the media coverage of Milošević. One, which fundamentally supported international criminal law and its prevalence over municipal law (“pro-ICL”), was deployed by most Western, liberal-democratic media outlets, as well as some in the former Yugoslavia. The other involved frames used by nationalist media from the former Yugoslavia and some radical left-wing outlets from Western Europe (“anti-ICL”), which promoted national sovereignty rather than international law.

Keywords:   criminal trials, media coverage, public image, Slobodan Milošević, international criminal law
