Steinberg: Assessing the Legacy of the ICTY

Richard H. Steinberg (Univ. of California, Los Angeles - Law) has published Assessing the Legacy of the ICTY (Martinus Nijhoff Publishers 2011). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:
This collection of essays assesses the legacy established by the most important international criminal tribunal since the Nuremberg and Tokyo war crimes trials, and considers what might be done to enhance or modify the legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), including improvement of the capacity of state courts in the region to prosecute violations of humanitarian law by using the Tribunal’s documents, evidence, law, and practice.
