International Criminal Courts

The first significant experience of an international court, albeit military and non-civilian, is that of the Nuremberg Court for crimes committed by the Nazis, made up of the winning powers of the Second World War. A similar court was established for the same purposes in Tokyo.

However, it is with the 1990s - and with the genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda - that the work of international justice intensifies, in a path that will lead to the creation of the International Criminal Court.

From the Courts for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, to the Courts called to judge the crimes committed in Cambodia and Sierra Leone, Gariwo followed the main proceedings and collected opinions and reflections on international justice.
