Milosevic Trial Public Archive

Planning for a digital archive of 1,800 hours of streaming and downloadable video, expert reports, and complete transcripts of the trial of former Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic at the United Nations war crimes court in the Hague.

The Human Rights Project at Bard College, in partnership with the nonprofit Internet Archive, is seeking funds to support the planning of an innovative archive that would provide free and fully-searchable streaming and downloadable video of the trial of former Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic at the United Nations' war crimes court in The Hague. Milosevic was the first head of state ever to be tried for genocide, and the footage of his historic trial, which lasted from 2002 to 2006, includes more than 1,800 hours of testimony and procedure and represents a significant record of the decade of war that engulfed the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s. This archive will feature sophisticated search capabilities and will be of significant value to scholars, educators, researchers, specialists, interdisciplinary artists, and documentary makers as well as to the general public. Jurisprudence, history, and linguistics are a few of the humanities disciplines that this project addresses.
