Brief synopsis

The International Criminal Tribunal For The Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) was a unique experiment in the history of justice. For the first time, war criminals from all sides of a conflict were tried by an independent and international court. In more than 20 years, the ICTY sentenced 160 persons – from Milošević and Mladić to ordinary men the war had turned into criminals – and exposed the Srebrenica genocide. Yet, its legacy is controversial. Today, the people of ex-Yugoslavia are nowhere close to reconciliation, and the idea of international justice seems utopian.
