This chapter examines how the UN General Assembly has dealt with issues around propaganda for war. It considers the geo-political context of the Cold War in which various resolutions and declarations of the Assembly concerning propaganda were drafted. These resolutions are discussed in detail, as are efforts at other fora such as the Conference of the Eighteen-Nation Committee on Disarmament at bridging the ideological and political divide between the West and the Soviets on the matter. Other condemnations of propaganda for war such as in the Outer Space Treaty 1967, bilateral treaties, and the impact of initiatives such as the New World Information Order as spearheaded by the non-aligned movement, are also discussed.

Keywords:   UN, resolution, declaration, treaty, state responsibility, disarmament, Cold War, Soviet, peace
