Operational Aspects of Setting Up the International Criminal Court: Building on the Experience of the International Criminal Tribunal For the Former Yugoslavia

By Hans Holthuis


This Essay examines the practical experience of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia ( ICTY ) and, in particular, its Registry with regard to operational matters and its relevance within the setup of the International Criminal Court ( ICC ).

In my conclusions, I would like to revert to the practical experience the ICTY has gained so far and upon which the States Parties could draw when considering the different operational aspects of setting up this important new international judicial institution
