dc.description.abstract A transcript of an interview with David Falces by Leigh Swigart and David P. Briand. The interview took place on May 27, 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, Falces reminisces on driving through sniper territory en route to Belgrade from Zagreb for a peacekeeping operations job; the state of the building that the Tribunal initially cohabited; the progression of how the Tribunal dealt with large amounts of data and evidence; the impact of a large number of Americans who were seconded by the American government; the introduction of Real Time Transcription; disinterest in the trials by populations in the Balkans due to the lack of frequently exciting events. Falces also discusses the variety of tasks Falces assumed at the Tribunal; technological advancements in the courtroom to show evidence and aid people to follow the developments during the course of the testimony; the expensive transition from tapes to digital format for the court recordings; how other Courts have imitated the technological practices of the ICTY due to its success, and digitizing all forms of documentation for the Tribunal as a means of preservation. en
