The genocide law began to take shape with the Nuremberg Tribunal (1945-46) and the trials held in a number of countries that had been occupied by the Nazis. Later in 1948 the U.N. Convention was signed. During the 40 years that followed, no significant development took place except the Eichmann case in Jerusalem. The decisions made by the courts created in Arusha and The Hague due to the genocides that took place in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s and discussions held on the status of the �International Criminal Court� have put the genocide issue on the agenda of the international community.
