Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (BiH v. Serbia)

ICJ seal

On 20 March 1993, Bosnia and Herzegovina instituted proceedings against Yugoslavia (later Serbia and Montenegro) in respect of a dispute concerning alleged violations by Yugoslavia of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (the 'Genocide Convention'). In the Application, Bosnia and Herzegovina recounted a series of events within its territory which, in its contention, amounted to acts of genocide within the definition given in the Genocide Convention. Bosnia and Herzegovina posited that Yugoslavia was fully responsible under international law for these activities. On 26 February 2007, the Court found that Serbia had not committed genocide although it violated its obligation under the Genocide Convention to prevent genocide in Srebrenica. Additionally, it found that Serbia had violated its obligations under the Convention by failing to fully cooperate with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
