Abstract

Grievous moral opprobrium has often been the trigger justifying the recourse to individual criminal responsibility of perpetrators. The process of ‘justice cascade’ initiated by the Nuremberg trials should not come to a halt. Though the current measures of criminal justice enforcement within international tribunals and national courts prove to be necessary mechanisms, they are not always sufficient. Bringing forward the crime of enforced disappearance as an illustration of a phenomenon where impunity still holds its way, this article addresses the question of whether regional initiatives on international criminal law enforcement within Europe can complement the adjudicatory justice already administered at the international and national level.
