dc.description.abstract A transcript of an interview with Mirko Klarin by Leigh Swigart and Linda Carter. The interview took place on May 25, 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, Klarin reminisces on his early reactions to events in the Balkans; meeting with legal experts about the feasibility of establishing a Nuremberg-like tribunal in response; the waning interest of the Tribunal in victim testimony; the complications of reporting on the trials of multilingual and multiethnic accused persons; the shock of Erdemović entering a plea of guilty, and the lack of interest by certain judges about perceptions of the Tribunal in the Balkan region. Klarin also discusses the importance of broadcasting the first guilty pleas of the ICTY (Erdemović and Jelisić); the partial and nationalist interest in covering certain trials by Balkan journalists; the importance for the Tribunal and future tribunals to emphasize the relationship between such institutions and the victims whom they claim to serve; Klarin's ambition to preserve as much of the unpublicized stories of the conflict and the Tribunal by continuing SENSE coverage as the ICTY finishes its final cases, and his involvement in the establishment of the Documentation Centre Srebenica in 2014. en
