The Legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the Nuremberg Principles
The International Nuremberg Principles Academy, in cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, cordially invites you to attend the seminar.
The Nuremberg trials, including its subsequent trials ended in 1949 and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) was only established in 1993. The seminar will look at the establishment of the first international criminal tribunal since Nuremberg and will discuss the ICTY’s legacy in terms of case law development, the prosecution of heads of states, defense strategies and domestic jurisdiction. The Academy will bring together high level academics and legal practitioners from a diverse background and discuss the impact of the ICTY in the region, as well as its impact on the development of international criminal law and the furtherance of the Nuremberg Principles. In 2010, the UN Security Council Resolution 1966 established the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals which will continue the jurisdiction, rights and obligations and essential functions of the ICTY once it closes at the end of 2017.
