The post-World War II period has witnessed numerous armed conflicts characterized by violations of relevant obligatory international norms. Responding to these events, the United Nations General Assembly created a permanent international court in 2003, with jurisdiction over selected international crimes. The International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia was a precursor to this permanent court. It was established for the purpose of ""prosecuting persons responsible for serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in the territory of the former Yugoslavia"". This work comprehensively examines the creation, mandate and challenges of the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.
