Serbia’s War Crimes Chamber

Legacy Link
This 32-page briefing paper evaluates the progress of the War Crimes Chamber since it was established in 2003 as a complement to the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The Hague-based ICTY will only try a limited number of top-level accused before its mandate ends in 2010. The remaining lower- and mid-level offenders need to be tried in national courts, including in Serbia.
