Abstract

This essay appears as the ninth chapter of The Rules, Practice, and Jurisprudence of International Courts and Tribunals (Chiara Giorgetti ed., Brill, 2012). It covers the origin, establishment, organization, jurisdiction, and procedures of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). It then explains and analyzes a selection of the ICTR’s significant contributions to international criminal jurisprudence, covering, in particular, the Akayesu; Kayishema & Ruzindana; Nahimana, Barayagwiza & Ngeze (“The Media Case”); and Baglishema cases. The issues therefore include, among others, specific intent in the definition of genocide, rape as a modality of genocide, jurisdiction to prosecute violations of Additional Protocol II of 1977, and incitement to genocide.
