ICTY 2017

The revival of Nuremberg: ICTY - a milestone for the fight against impunity?

The International Nuremberg Principles Academy cordially invites you to the seminar on the 'Legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the Nuremberg Principles' taking place in Nuremberg on 05.-06.May 2017. 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.
