Conclusion: the Impact of the Arusha Tribunal
In the preceding chapter, I noted that all that can be attempted at this stage is a tentative assessment of the impact of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) (figure 9.1). Thus a more definitive judgment of history must await the work of historians in future years. The experience of the Nuremberg trials, where the impact of the International Military Tribunal established by the Allied Powers after World War I was not immediately apparent at the time but underwent a steady metamorphosis, is instructive.
