If the impact of the ICTY in the countries of the former Yugoslavia were to be measured exclusively by the poor public perception of the Tribunal that prevails, perhaps the best course of action would be to shut its doors without waiting for the end of its mandate. The author tries, however, to show the more complex and multifaceted nature of the perception of the Tribunal at different levels, in the different countries of the former Yugoslavia, as well as at different moments in time. His conclusion is that the ICTY should have done more to improve its image in the region, thereby making it more difficult for the local elites to distort and manipulate its message.
