This difference in the mandate has made the author interested in what that difference can mean to the work of the tribunals. When evaluating the tribunal’s work, will the result be different? With help of the theories about thin notion of reconciliation, the author creates four criteria for a “successful reconciliation” and against them the author measures the work of the tribunal to see which tribunal has been more successful.
The result of the essay is that the tribunals work seems to be very similar, regardless of the mandate. Even though ICTR is more successful in one criterion, it seems as the success in this criteria depends on more than just the tribunal’s work (Less)
