In this lecture, T.M.C. Asser Institute offers a perspective on the trial and the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) through two artistic interventions: the documentary The Trial of Ratko Mladic (Rob Miller and Henry Singer, 2018) and the exhibition Resolution 808 – Inside the Yugoslavia Tribunal (Jorie Horsthuis and Martino Lombezzi). The speakers will shed light on the process and impact of their artistic rendering of the trial and the importance of such visualisations for the legacy and reach of the ICTY more generally.
The final verdict in the case of Ratko Mladić before the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals is scheduled for early June. This trial has a long history and is the subject of many discussions amongst international lawyers as well as local, regional and global communities. The impact of the trial reaches far beyond that what can be explained in the language of the law. To understand the different meanings the ICTY has for different people, T.M.C. Asser Institute invites you to look at its work through an alternative lens.
