International Women’s Day 2015

On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, the ICTY honors the role of women in furthering international criminal justice. In a video message to mark the occasion, the ICTY President and other officials commend the women - victims and witnesses - affected by conflicts who testified before the Tribunal, and speak of the Tribunal’s historic role in ending impunity for crimes of sexual violence committed against women during armed conflicts.

The ICTY trials involving crimes of sexual violence committed against women in wartime have decisively contributed to advancing international law pertaining to the legal treatment and punishment of those crimes and have been an important achievement in the Tribunal’s work to create the legacy of accountability and justice.
