Welcome to the New ICTY Website

This new site was launched in December 2008. We hope you like the fresh approach and the many new features available. The new look and innovative additional content is aimed at enhancing accessibility to the Tribunal's courtrooms and activities.

An Introduction to the Structure of the New ICTY Website

Already a global leader in judicial transparency and accountability, the Tribunal has developed its new website to provide more information about how the organization works, as well as insights into its main challenges and achievements.

It is hoped that this site will be of interest to both general readers, as well as specialized groups ranging from legal professionals to the communities most affected by the crimes addressed at the Tribunal.

An interactive map on the site’s homepage, for example, enables users to view at a glance the regions where alleged crimes were committed for which the Tribunal has held trials.

The About section gives an overview of the origins and mandate of the Tribunal, and the history and conflicts of the former Yugoslavia. It describes the main bodies operating at the Tribunal, and gives various general information.
  The Cases section of the site holds more than 35,000 documents – indictments, decisions, orders, transcripts and judgements – and represents the main public source for legal documents for legal practitioners, academics and the media.
  The Legal Library section contains all the main legal documents regulating the work of the Tribunal.
  The Press section provides information for the media, including archived news and a photo gallery.
  The Outreach section focuses on the Tribunal's work and partnerships with audiences in the different states that emerged from the former Yugoslavia.

Elsewhere, special features have been prepared to focus on key issues to the Tribunal, international justice, the rule of law and peace in the former Yugoslavia.

A section is dedicated to the Voice of the Victims, in which users can read about their experience and also view video clips from some of the testimonies given before the Tribunal. A special feature concerning statements from those accused who plead guilty is also provided. The new website also gives an insight into the reasons why the arrest of the two remaining fugitives -out of 161 indicted- is of paramount importance for the completion of the Tribunal's mandate.
