In the post-Nuremberg era two of the most important developments in international criminal law are the establishment of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR).

Created through UN Security Council resolutions and endowed with specific mandates, the ICTY and the ICTR played crucial roles in the further development of international criminal law. This conversation with Prof. Michael Scharf and Prof. Milena Sterio will focus on the achievements of these tribunals, and how they laid the groundwork for other ad hoc tribunals and the permanent International Criminal Court.

The speakers

  • Prof. Michael Scharf (Dean, School of Law, Joseph C. Hostetler - BakerHostetler Professor of Law, Case Western Reserve University School of Law)
  • Prof. Milena Sterio (Professor of Law & Associate Dean for Academic Enrichment, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law).
