This chapter examines the steps taken by governments (and NGOs) to reduce the injurious effects of international propaganda after the First World War. Bilateral treaties dealing with propaganda are discussed as are the various steps taken within the ambit of the League of Nations, focusing on the crucial 1936 Convention on the Use of Broadcasting in the Cause of Peace. The jurisprudence of the Second World War trials is examined in order to determine both the effect which propaganda for war had had on the outbreaks of violence, but also to establish why an international criminal offence of incitement to aggression did not flow from the judgment of the IMT at Nuremberg in a similar fashion to the crime of incitement to genocide subsequently included in the Genocide Convention.

Keywords:   Nuremberg, broadcasting, League of Nations, bilateral treaties, ministries case, world war, incitement, genocide, aggression
