Legacy as Dialogue—Reflecting on the ICTY Experience

(p.1) Introduction
Legacies of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia

Carsten Stahn

Oxford University Press

The ICTY is usually viewed as a relatively successful example of investigation and prosecution of international crimes. It was born in what many see now as a ‘heroic’ phase of international criminal justice. Throughout its almost two and half decades of existence, it faced many of the existential challenges of international criminal justice, such as selectivity, distance from crimes and victims, uncertainties regarding identity, efficiency and impact, and a complex interrelation with politics. The tribunal has addressed these challenges through constant transformation. It gradually portrayed its own legacy through the lens of dialogue. This contribution introduces main sites and themes of legacy. It shows that legacies derive not only from successes, but also from setbacks and failures.
