This chapter discusses the process of creating the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. It charts the process from the adoption of Resolution 827 on May 25, 1993 to the end of the establishment in 1996. Tremendous logistical, financial, and political problems were overcome to transform the Tribunal from a ‘nebulous idea’ of the Security Council into a reality. These include finding premises, building courtrooms, recruiting staff, coping with a limited budget, and appointing a prosecutor.
