ICTY Donates Books to Pristina Law Faculty


The ICTY today made a substantial donation of legal journals to the Law Faculty and Human Rights Centre of Pristina University.

The donation consists of an extensive anthology of the American Journal of International Law, ICTY Judicial Reports, the European Journal of International Law, various legal manuals and books on legal theory and practice.

The Tribunal is committed to promoting respect for the rule of law which is of paramount importance in building modern societies and advancing those values, especially among the young generations of Kosovans.

The donated books and journals will greatly benefit the students of law in Kosovo as well as legal professionals practicing there.

As the ICTY moves towards the completion of its mandate, the Outreach Programme is intensifying its efforts to increase the local communities’ access to and understanding of the international criminal justice system and the Tribunal’s achievements within it.

In doing so, the Outreach Programme seeks to cement the legacy of the Tribunal throughout the region of the former Yugoslavia.
