Preventing Future War

  • Promote Disarmament

    • Article 8 of the covenant- “Members of the League recognise that the maintenance of peace requires the reduction of national armaments to the lowest point consistent with national safety”

  • Abolish secret diplomacy

    • Wilson believed secret diplomacy and the Triple Alliance and Triple Entente were the main cause of WW1

    • Under Article 18 of the covenant, any future treaty entered into by a member state must go through the League of Nations

  • Arbitration

    • According to Google-

    • “Arbitration, a form of alternative dispute resolution, is a way to resolve disputes outside the courts. The dispute will be decided by one or more persons, which renders the 'arbitration award'. An arbitration award is legally binding on both sides and enforceable in the courts.”

    • As part of this aim, the League of Nations would investigate disputes and pass judgement.
