▪ Peacekeeping Measures of the League of Nations

MeasuresFunctionsHow this would maintain world peace
• Impose arms embargo to cut off arms supplies to the offending state
• Carry out military intervention
• In theory, the League could use military force to stop offending nation
• However, it had no army of its own and would depend on the volunteer forces from member countries
Arbitration• Act as ‘referee’ by calling nations involved in a dispute to discuss the problem in the Assembly• League could also issue warnings if the offending nation did not comply with the Assembly’s decision
• League’s members could come together to publicly condemn the wrong doings of an offending state• It was hoped that this would persuade or pressure the offending nation to stop its aggressive actions
Economic or
Trade Sanctions
• These sanctions prevented the exchange of food, goods or supplies between members of League & the offending nation• This way, members of the League would then pressure the offending nation to obey the League’s decisions before trade relations could resume
Disarmament• The League was assigned to organise disarmament plans for members of the League• A special Disarmament Commission would organise disarmament conferences to push for disarmament in each nation
