dc.description.abstract A transcript of an interview with Carolina de Lima by Leigh Swigart and David P. Briand. The interview took place on May 24, 2015 at The Hague, Netherlands, and the transcript, which is represented here, has been reviewed and edited from the original audio version. During the interview, de Lima reminisces on learning of and joining ICTY right after its establishment; working atmosphere of the ICTY when it had fewer than 200 employees; models provided by women leaders in the Registry, Chambers, and Office of the Prosecutor; initial establishment of policies and regulations at the Tribunal; work on Srebrenica trials; interactions with a rape victim who testified, and trauma of Dutchbat soldiers who were stationed in the Balkans. De Lima also discusses types of support provided to witnesses who came to ICTY to testify; UN staff hierarchy and frustrations felt by ICTY employees; understanding administrative procedures; process of identifying and tracking down witnesses; challenges of assisting protected witnesses; creation of ICTY "how-to" video to prepare witnesses to testify, and changes in her views on the work of the tribunal as she has grown older and more experienced. en
