Abstract

War-crimes courts are established and funded by authorities such as: the Allies after World War II, in the case of the Nuremberg and Tokyo tribunals; the United Nations for the tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda; and the United Nations working in concert with a national government for the tribunals for Sierra Leone, Cambodia, and Lebanon. In the case of the International Criminal Court, the 124 states parties that ratified the Rome Statute, founding the court, comprise its founding authority. Some of the institutions discussed here are called tribunals, others are called courts.
