International Criminal Court

Even more global journalism at the official website.

The last two men wanted for war crimes in the former Yugoslavia have finally been apprehended, and the International Criminal Court is poised to begin the greatest war crime trials since Nuremberg. But with the United States suffering from a heat wave and a domestic spending crisis, coverage has been limited in the American media.

Join us on the Global Journalist this week when we discuss the facts and relevance of these upcoming war crimes trials at the International Criminal Court and the differences in coverage in Europe and the United States.

This week, our guests include Arthur Max, the Netherlands Bureau Chief of the Associate Press, and Rachel Irwin from the Institute for War and Peace Reporting in The Hague. Both these journalists have extensively covered the International Criminal Court and the ongoing trials there.
