Reflections on the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia

In 1993, the United Nations Security Council established the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in a bold new step towards ending impunity for conflict-related atrocities.

More than 20 years on, the ICTY has achieved more than many initially thought possible. All 161 indicted persons are accounted for and the ICTY has helped to create the foundations for an enduring international criminal justice system.

Futures for human rights

This workshop considers possible futures for the protection of human rights.

Why are international human rights standards widely accepted in theory but hard to implement in practice? Although the international community has created a complex and sophisticated system of human rights standards, these principles are regularly sidelined or ignored by countries that have accepted them.

Speakers at the conference will consider ways of understanding the gaps between international human rights norms and their implementation, and measures to decrease these gaps.
