Show Summary Details


This chapter compares international criminal tribunals and courts with the so-called mixed or internationalized tribunals and courts, and examines the reasons underlying the establishment of these particular mixed or internationalized courts. It also considers the main practical and legal problems that these courts are facing, focusing on the experiences of Kosovo, East Timor, Cambodia, and Sierra Leone, along with areas where new internationalized courts could or might be established in the near future. A general outlook for international criminal justice is also presented. The chapter argues that there is no single response to the multifarious aspects of international criminality, and that mixed or internationalized criminal courts and tribunals may prove to be one of the most effective societal and institutional devices currently available to international lawmakers.
