        Judgment And Legacy

        This video from Women War & Peace reveals the verdict of the Yugoslav War Crimes Tribunal. In a historical verdict, the three defendants, all commanders in the Bosnian Serb army, were found guilty. While the Tribunal could not prosecute everyone involved, the trial was symbolic and the verdict established sexual enslavement as a crime against humanity, setting a precedent for future wars. The trial also raised awareness of the use of rape as a weapon of terror and demonstrated that there would potentially be consequences for anyone using rape as a weapon during wartime.
