The Milošević Trial

Alexander K.A. Greenawalt

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that although the Milošević trial may have eventually served the cause of peace, that result was neither inevitable nor predictable given the trial's institutional context. A review of the ICTY's history indicates deep tensions between the ideal of criminal justice and the court's peacemaking function. It also raises questions about the extent to which prosecutors and judges at international tribunals should take account of their institutions' broader political impact in their decision-making process.

Keywords:   criminal trials, ICTY, international criminal justice, Slobodan Milošević
