Les tribunaux pénaux internationaux. Ombre et lumière d'une récente grande ambition

  • Jean-Marc Sorel
Registered author(s):

    International Criminal Tribunals are certainly the most outstanding among the resurgence of International Tribunals because they appeared just after serious humanitarian crises (ex-Yugoslavia and Rwanda) before leading to a permanent Tribunal (the International Criminal Court) which coexists with other types of Tribunals. For a long time, this heterogeneous whole has been looking for its own model of justice and this has led to some poor management. Furthermore, although the wish to punish the main criminals for humanitarian crimes exists, it has to be reconciled with international political necessities, and it is impossible to forget the first goal of the international community, which is to prevent the crimes the international criminal tribunals are in charge of judging.
