The League of Nations: an Analysis of its Institutional and Operational Characteristics as a Peace-Keeping Organization
MetadataShow full item record
The League of Nations' role in peacekeeping in the inter-war period was the primary purpose of its founders and members. How it went about creating a system in which the goal could be realised, and the way in which it encouraged conformity to its system, is the focus of this paper. Using theories of international relations and international organisations characteristics, an argument is presented that the League was an attempt to codify for its membership a system of peacekeeping through political interaction and the impartation of power to them. Using international relations theory, the expectations of the dynamic of power within and upon the League, and the expectations which informed these in the conception of the League, are explored to delineate the power of the League as an organisation upon the international system and the power of states upon the League. The assertions of various theories and their application to the League are used to discover its value to the international community from an institutional standpoint, and its role as a body for creating standards of conduct, and its ability to do so, are used to define its purpose in the mission of collective peacekeeping.
