Demography of Armed Conflict in the Perspective of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY)

4th March 2011 1pm, University of Southampton 58/2097

Ewa Tabeau, International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, United Nations

This seminar will introduce the research area of demography of armed conflict using the experience of the Demographic Unit in the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague (DU-ICTY). First, a few examples will be given of analyses completed at DU-ICTY and admitted into evidence in ICTY trials. The examples will relate to the 1990s wars in the former Yugoslavia, including Bosnia and Herzegovina and/or Kosovo. Second, two major approaches will be distinguished between the research conducted for judicial institutions, such as international war crimes tribunals and truth commissions, and the research conducted for purely scientific purposes. Finally, key challenges will be addressed in measuring and/or estimating demographic consequences of war.

Note: This is a joint seminar with University of Southampton Social Statistics and Demography Seminar Series
