This chapter discusses some of the jurisprudence of the international criminal tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda on international and non-international armed conflicts. It begins by focusing on the seminal interlocutory decision of the ICTY Appeals Chamber in the Tadić case, which involved a challenge to the Tribunal's jurisdiction. It then discusses some of the important ways in which the Tadić decision, presided over by the visionary scholar and judge Antonio Cassese, has influenced the jurisprudence of the ad hoc Tribunals and the development of international humanitarian law more generally.
