International Criminal Tribunal
for the former Yugoslavia

The death of Slobodan Miloševic in his prison cell in The Hague, just weeks short of the conclusion of his trial at the UN International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), brought to the fore once again the recent history and the future destiny of the countries of what was Yugoslavia. The fact that the trial of the Tribunal's most important accused in custody ended this way led many commentators to question the credibility of the ICTY and the idea of progress in the Western Balkans. Moreover, questions resurfaced about whether this region can really become part of the European Union without bringing justice to the former Yugoslavia.
