This concluding chapter summarises the key findings made in the book, highlighting the various efforts made at prohibiting propaganda for war throughout the past century, and its unusual location in the field of international law. While identifying the central elements of the prohibition, it refutes the various arguments made by states opposed to the prohibition, while also warning of means by which the prohibition can be abused should it be continued to be overlooked by the international community of lawyers and human rights activists. Laying the emphasis on the Human Rights Committee to engage with a provision of the Covenant which to date has been to all extents ignored, as well as the signatories to the Rome Statute on the question of incitement to aggression, it is suggested that there is significant potential dormant in the pursuit of the prohibition of propaganda for war.
