The League’s Unsuccessful Work
The League could not stop powerful nations (e.g., in 1923, when France invaded the Ruhr, and Italy occupied Corfu).
The League was unable to get members to agree to limit the sizes of their armed forces.
Both disarmament conferences failed – in 1923 (because Britain objected) and in 1931 (because Germany walked out).
The League’s Unsuccessful Humanitarian Work
The International Labour Organisation (I.L.O) tried to persuade members to adopt a maximum 48 hour week, but only a few members adopted it.
The League's commissions and committees lacked funds, so it was difficult for them to carry out their work.
