Questions About This Book?
The international trial of Slobodan Milo%sevi'c, who presided over the violent collapse of Yugoslavia - was already among the longest war crimes trials when Milo%sevi'c died in 2006. Yet precisely because it ended without judgment, its significance and legacy are specially contested. The contributors to this volume, including trial participants, area specialists, and international law scholars bring a variety of perspectives as they examine the meaning of the trial's termination and its implications for post-conflict justice. The book's approach is intensively cross-disciplinary, weighing the implications for law, politics, and society that modern war crimes trials create.
The time for such an examination is fitting, with the imminent closing of the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal and rising debates over its legacy, as well as the 20th anniversary of the outbreak of the Yugoslav conflict. The Milo%sevi'c Trial - An Autopsy brings thought-provoking insights into the impact of war crimes trials on post-conflict justice.
