Given that the definition of ‘propaganda for war’ lies to the crux of understanding the scope of the prohibition set forth in Article 20(1), this chapter provides a detailed analysis of its drafting history. Taken in two distinct sections, namely the debates around the meaning of freedom of expression at the Commission on Human Rights from 1947 to 1952, and the contemporaneous debates on the prohibition of incitement also at the Commission between 1947 to 1953, and the final round of debates at the Third Committee in 1961, the Chapter considers all the issues discussed, placed firmly in the political context of the time which had a massive impact on the final inclusion of the provision in the Covenant, as well as suggesting a definition of ‘propaganda of war’.
