Does the pursuit of justice during war impede peace processes? Not always, writes Senior Associate Joyce Neu.

Joyce’s article, “Pursuing Justice in the Midst of War:  The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia” has just  appeared in the February 2012 issue of the journal, Negotiation and Conflict Management Research5, 1.  The article focuses on the first war crimes tribunal to be established since the Nuremberg trials and the first to launch proceedings during a war.  Joyce argues that in this unique case, the war crimes tribunal was used as a tool of diplomacy by the peacemakers and not perceived as an obstacle to peace.
