This article contributes to the empirically-based research on transitional justice by comparing different sectors associated with the ICTY’s multidimensional mandate in Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo and Serbia. Our central proposition is that given the initial differences between Balkan states over the establishment of the court and varied levels of international involvement throughout the region, changes associated with the ICTY’s long-term mission, what we call transitional justice outcomes, should vary and there should be some clear differences in transitional justice outcomes in the Balkans. Yet, we find that this is not the case and outcomes related to progressive political change and transitional justice are fairly uniform throughout the region.
