Description:

This book investigates the legal shortcomings experienced by the ad hoc tribunals created in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia, with regard to genocide trials. International Criminal Law has experienced phenomenal growth in the past decade owing to international crises witnessed in these two countries. The impetus provided by the two crises led to the formation of ad hoc tribunals to prosecute mass violations of human rights in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia.
