The Milošević Trial

This chapter examines a debate generated by the Milošević trial within Serbia's liberal intelligentsia. The 2002 Vreme debate exposed the existence of two alternative narratives of the Serb experience of the wars of the 1990s; two approaches to the question of responsibility for the crimes committed in those wars; and two deeply opposed visions of the role played by the West in Serbia's democratic transition. The debate offers important insights into why the impact of courts in transitional societies is not as straightforward as their advocates might hope.

Keywords:   Vreme debate, Serbia, criminal trials, transitional societies, Slobodan Milošević
