Joint criminal enterprise (JCE) is a legal doctrine used by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to prosecute political and military leaders for mass war crimes, including genocide, committed during the Yugoslav wars 1991-1999.
This doctrine considers each member of an organized group individually responsible for crimes committed by group within the common plan or purpose. For example, "if three people commit a bank robbery and one fatally shoots a person in the process, the law considers all guilty of murder."
