In this chapter, Meron addresses the question of whether international criminal justice works, based on his experiences as judge on the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. He sets forth and evaluates four criteria: how successful we are in finding and trying suspected perpetrators of international crimes; the extent to which we are providing these accused a fair trial; whether and how we are deterring further international crimes; and whether and how effectively our actions are promoting peace and healing in the affected region.

Keywords: international criminal justice; international criminal courts; former Yugoslavia; Rwanda
