This article will review the approach taken by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR' or 'Tribunal') in the trial of three defendants, each accused of inciting genocide. In evaluating the ICTR's opinion I will examine some of the more significant precedents the Tribunal relied upon in its decision. I will also analyze U.S. jurisprudence on preventing incitement to violence, and briefly compare the international and U.S. approaches to punishing incitement. My analysis of U.S. jurisprudence will focus mainly on the U.S. Supreme Court case of Virgina v. Black, as well as a few earlier cases dealing with government prohibitions on hate speech.'
