A Glimpse into the Archives – United Nations, Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals
Eine kleine, optisch ansprechende und gut gemachte Online-Ausstellung, die einen Blick auf die Archive/Registraturen (und/oder: Asservatenkammern…) der UN-Strafgerichtshöfe ermöglicht: LINK.
The International Criminal Tribunals for Rwanda (ICTR) and for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) laid the foundation for modern international criminal justice. Their archives, now in the custody of the Mechanism, contain thousands of judicial records, including documents filed by parties and non-parties, exhibits tendered into evidence during trials, maps, transcripts of the proceedings, photographs, and audiovisual recordings of court hearings.
This online exhibition offers a glimpse of these records. The 10 items displayed here illustrate the diversity of records, which document the judicial process while also depicting specific events that are part of larger contexts. The archives also help to make tangible the complexity of the events that took place in Rwanda and in the former Yugoslavia.
Public ICTR and ICTY records are accessible on the Mechanism’s Judicial Records and Archives Database, and the ICTY Court Records, respectively.
