Rwandan Genocide and the International Law of Radio Jamming

Abstract

Through examining the use of radio broadcasts in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, U.S. responses to it, and the international law and contemporary policy on radio jamming, this article argues that the traditional U.S. blanket rejection of jamming as a violation of free expression is no longer fully appropriate. It proposes a narrow exception to the general international standard supporting the free flow of information for cases of incitement to genocide or mass human rights abuse where the occurrence of genocide or such mass abuse is considered imminent.
