This Article will focus on some of the practical considerations underlying the decision to resort to a particular type of prosecution: international, hybrid, or national. Part II of this Article will describe the ICTY's referral of the Ademi/Norac case to Croatian national courts, focusing on the reasons underlying the referral, as well as on the appropriateness of the referral in light of international criminal law. Part III will then focus on the Special Court, in an effort to assess whether such a hybrid tribunal is a better form of international justice. Finally, Part IV will outline certain paradigms in an effort to propose solutions for certain types of cases and to determine which type of prosecution, international, hybrid or national, is best for each situation.
