As part of the ICTY Legacy Dialogues series, the Tribunal is holding its final Legacy Conference in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, from 22 -24 June 2017.
Journalists are invited to cover this important event which will take place at the Hotel Holiday in Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina. All working sessions of the Conference will be open to the press.
The goal of the Conference is to enable others to build on the achievements the ICTY has made over its 24 year history. The Conference is envisioned as a series of dynamic dialogues with those who can take what the ICTY has developed forward into new areas, with a particular focus on the role of national actors. The participants will explore how the work of the ICTY can feed responses to conflict-related atrocities and crimes at a national level in a number of fields, while also benefiting from the transfer of insights gained at the national level.
The Conference will be attended by representatives of national jurisdictions, victims, youth groups, lawyers, journalists, politicians, NGOs, scholars and other members of civil society from the countries of the former Yugoslavia, as well as international experts and academics and the Tribunal’s staff and judges. The Conference Programme and Concept Paper of the Conference are available on the Tribunal’s website.
