Public opinion surveys demonstrate the failure of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), the first modern, post-Nuremberg international criminal jurisdiction, to persuade target audiences in the former Yugoslavia about the truth of the findings in its judgments. Denialism and revisionism about the mass atrocities committed during the Yugoslav wars remain rampant.  Why has the ICTY proven to be so ineffectual in inducing attitude change?

Please join CSIL for a talk by Visiting Professor Marko Milanovic addressing this foundational question of transitional justice.

Marko Milanovic is an Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham School of Law, Vice President and member of the Executive Board of the European Society of International Law, an Associate of the Belgrade Center for Human Rights, and co-editor and Editorial Board member of EJIL: Talk!, the blog of the European Journal of International Law.  He has published in leading academic journals and served as counsel or advisor in cases before the International Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights, and the Constitutional Court of Serbia. His areas of expertise include human rights law, international criminal law, and international humanitarian law.

A *non-pizza lunch* will be served.
