• What are the roles of the international community and the United Nations in advancing the rule of law by assisting the capacity building of the judiciaries of the former Yugoslavia to prosecute war crimes? • What are the best practices, lessons learned and needs identified in knowledge transfer and capacity building? • What capacity building activities are being undertaken to achieve the identified goals? • How can sustainability and local ownership be ensured? • Is it necessary and possible to improve the coordination of capacity building efforts in the countries of the region?
The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) convened a two-day Conference "Assessing the Legacy of the ICTY" in The Hague on 23-24 February 2010. The Conference was co-organised and co-sponsored by the Government of the Netherlands and the Sanela Diana Jenkins Human Rights Project at UCLA School of Law.
Inspired by broader UN efforts to coordinate rule of law activities, and by interest from governments, policy-makers, scholars and others, the Conference provided a platform for the Tribunal and relevant stakeholders to share their respective views of the Tribunal's legacy and their respective visions of how best to utilise its legal and institutional legacies, as well as how to exchange information about the legacy work that is being carried out by the Tribunal, other UN and international organisations, national governments and courts, non-governmental organisations and scholars.
A primary objective of the Conference was to promote coordination and cooperation among various actors in order to strengthen efforts in utilising the Tribunal's legacy for the purposes of the rule of law and peace and justice in the former Yugoslavia and beyond.
