In June 2107, Sarajevo hosted the ICTY Legacy Dialogues Conference, organized by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), in order to discuss what it had accomplished before it closes its doors this December. Iva Vukusic, a historian, considers what can be learnt from the experiment dealing with the carnage in the former Yugoslavia, when looking ahead to future war crimes tribunals such as Syria, and especially what the archives can contribute, if they are made as accessible as possible.

Judges at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) have been hearing this week arguments about the convictions for war crimes in 2013 of six former high ranking Bosnian Croats.
