The new issue of the through ACCESSION towards JUSTICE bulletin brings an interview with the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), Mr. Serge Brammertz, who spoke about the importance of establishing criminal justice for the war crimes committed and the achievements of the ICTY and national judiciaries. The Bulletin also relays an opinion about whether the European Union is faced with certain constraints, which make it difficult for the EU to approach the issues of establishing justice for the crimes committed in a more decisive and thorough manner. Mr. Iavor Rangelov and Ms. Marika Theros from the London School of Economics and Ms. Nataša Kandić, the founder of the Humanitarian Law Center and the RECOM Initiative Coordinator, give their answers to these questions.
The News section highlights current developments in the areas of transitional justice and Serbia’s EU integration process, and the War Crimes Trials section offers an overview of recently held trials and rulings delivered.
