This chapter provides an overview of the original provisions of the 1948 U.N. Genocide Convention and recent steps toward implementation. It describes the process used by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) to conduct the first trial for the crime of genocide ever held before an international court. It shows that the ICTR effectively expanded the coverage of the convention and set a precedent for studying local understandings of social difference.

Keywords:   original provisions, U.N. Genocide Convention, International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, trial, genocide, international court, convention, local understandings, social difference
