The year 2007 was again a very productive year for The International Criminal Tribunal for the Prosecution of Persons Responsible for Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law Committed in the Territory of the Former Yugoslavia since 1991. This article examines the judgements rendered by the Tribunal in 2007 and highlights the principal developments in international humanitarian and criminal law at the Tribunal. Among many other issues, the Tribunal's 2007 jurisprudence clarified important aspects of three forms of individual criminal responsibility, namely, aiding and abetting (“by omission”), superior responsibility and the joint criminal enterprise doctrine.
