Abstract

It was not until the 1990s, more than forty years after the Nuremberg Trials, that the question of how international criminal justice could be administered returned to the foreground of public interest. Following decisions reached by the UN Security Council, two international tribunals were installed in 1993 and 1994 to deal with the mass crimes perpetrated in the former Yugoslavia and in Rwanda. This was followed, in 2002, by the establishment of the International Criminal Court in La Hague, as a permanent court with a global jurisdiction-a great step forward and at the same time a challenge for the judicial system, the law, and politics.

What influence does politics have on international criminal justice, which claims to be neutral and objective? What criteria are employed to decide which cases come to trial? How are charges of victor's justice countered, and how do the international courts deal with the tensions between securing sustainable peace and attaining justice?
