The Virtual Tribunal

Eric Kansa

International criminal law is administered in ad hoc courts around the world and at the ICC in the Hague.  The ad hoc courts have a limited lifespan, disbanding when the trials are finished, but the legacy of the court has the potential to influence evolving domestic and international legal practices as well as peace and reconciliation processes.  The Virtual Tribunal is a tool for preserving the legacy of international criminal courts.  It is a digital archive of court documents and a portal for educational content that teaches and promotes dialogue about the procedures and judgments of the courts.  This pilot version of the Virtual Tribunal will be created with the Extraordinary Chambers of the Courts of Cambodia, a hybrid Cambodian and International court trying 5 Khmer Rouge criminal suspects.
