Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the rules of procedure and evidence at the ICTY which have developed through experimentation and experience. By design or accident, the rules at the beginning of the ICTY left many questions unanswered and allowed for easy amendment. Over the years, judges have repeatedly amended the rules to reflect lessons learned along the way and to develop a procedure designed to address the particular challenges facing the ICTY.

Keywords: rules of procedure; evidence; investigation challenges; expediency; completion strategy; self-representation; written testimony
