Establishment in 1993 of Bosnia War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague (Netherlands) in order to investigate and prosecute those believed to have committed war crimes--mass killings, summary executions, systematic rape, etc.--during the Bosnian War. The Tribunal has been hampered in its efforts by a Bosnian Serb government that doesn't recognize its legitimacy. Indeed, the governemnt as of 3/12/98 had not acted to execute 20 arrest warrants in its possession. In response the Tribunal has taken actions such as issuing secret indictments and becoming more aggressive in its pursuit of suspects.
This topic is rather broad; essentially, any and all activities of the Tribunal are on topic, including the expansion of the Tribunal into Kosovo. Note that stories concerning the International Tribunal for Rwanda are not on topic.
