Abstract

On June 8, Ratko Mladić, the Bosnian Serb commander, lost his appeal before the United Nations International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (Mechanism) Appeals Chamber in The Hague, Netherlands. The Appeals Chamber in Prosecutor v. Ratko Mladić affirmed Mladić’s convictions for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity perpetrated during the war in Bosnia between 1992 and 1995, as well as his sentence of life imprisonment. The judgment brings to a close the last major case initiated by the U.N. International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which was established in The Hague in 1993 to prosecute perpetrators of atrocity crimes in the Balkan region. The Mladić case thus offers an opportunity to assess not only the judgment itself, but also the ICTY’s legacy.
