Conference examines Milosevic trial

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A conference at Indiana University Maurer School of Law - Bloomington will dissect the Slobodan Milosevic trial and determine its impact on international criminal law. Milosevic's death in 2006 brought his trial to an abrupt halt just 10 days before its end, leaving the court, the people of the former Yugoslavia, and the world without a definitive legal resolution.

"The Milosevic Trial: An Autopsy" will address several key issues, including measuring the impact of trials in affected communities; devising case management and institutional design lessons for complex leadership trials; and considering the relationship between formal and legal processes and broader post-conflict transitional justice initiatives.

Conference participants include Zdenko Tomanovic, Law Office Tomanovic and Milosevic's legal advisor; Marco Prelec, director of the Balkans Project at International Crisis Group and former research officer with the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia; and Nina Kisic, lawyer in the criminal defense section, Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The event is free and open to the public Feb. 19-21. More details about the speakers, topics, and a tentative schedule are available on the law school's Web site. The conference is co-sponsored by IU's Russian and East European Institute and Center for West European Studies.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
