Incitement in International Law is a comprehensive legal and intellectual study of the position of incitement to hatred in international human rights and criminal law. Subjecting the concepts of propaganda and incitement to detailed critical, conceptual, contextual, legal and historical scrutiny, Wibke Timmermann persuasively argues for a modified perspective on current case law and jurisprudence, by providing a viable framework in establishing incitement to hatred as the crime against humanity of persecution. This volume provides the most complete and astute guidelines to both practitioners and scholars in dealing with the phenomenon of incitement and its consequences as part of international criminal trials.
