Enforcement of Sentences

Enforcement of Sentences in Europe

The Enforcement of the Icty Sentences

Filip Vojta, from the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Punishment and its alternatives,” under the title “The Enforcement of the Icty Sentences”. Here is the abstract: The presentation will give an insight into commencing doctoral research on the enforcement of the ICTY sentences. With respect to the closure of the ICTY's list of fugitive indictees, the approaching transfer of its responsibilities to the International Residual Mechanism, its impact on the post-war relations in the Balkans area, as well as the influence of its unique sentenceenforcement mechanism on other international courts (ICTR, ICC), the research is due to provide for a comprehensive empirical evaluation of this particular aspect of the ICTY's practice; especially with regard to the implementation of the Court's retributive sentencing aims through various national prison systems, as to assess the future sustainability of such approach in the area of international criminal justice. The first part of the presentation will shed light on the background of the research, while the second will further elaborate on methodology, techniques, aims and up-to-date findings.
