The League of Nations
Transcript of The League of Nations
8 Countries with 4 Permenent members (GB, F, It & Jp) each with a VETO.
* That's the power to cancel any law or ruling that country doesn't agree with. It meant it was hard to reach a decision!
Imagine they are like the senior leadership team of the school!
Every country in the league
met once a year but decisions had to be uniamous.
This would be like trying to get all the teachers in the school to agree on 1 thing - Not impossible but difficult!
This department kept records and prepared reports. Its staff had to multi-lingual.
Think of this as the school office that sorts out the typing and photocopying and organises everything.
The International Court
This was intended to settle disputes peacefully and was made up of top judges.
Imagine they are the Heads of House to sort out problems!
BUT HOW DO THEY SORT OUT AGGRESSION?
The simple answer is H E R M E M
H - Hearing
E - Enquiry
R - Ruling
M - Moral Pressure
E - Economic Sanctions
M - Military Intervention
"Woah sounds complicated!"
Let simplify using the examples from before...
1. So Rowie and Jessica get into a fist-fight on the yard...so what next...
2. The council has a hearing and both Rowie & Jessica give their side of the story...
That's the HEARING!
3. So the council dispatch Head Girl Rebecca to talk to the witnesses...
4. She reports back and the council make a decision..."Jessica you must apologise"...
5. Jessica refuses to apologise so the council tell her how disappointed in her they are...
6. That's not gonna cut it so they tell her..."no lunch until you apologise!"...
7. Still not giving in they are left with no other option...Mr Connolly will punch Jessica until she apologises...
There is the RULING
MORAL PRESSURE...see what I did there?
SANCTIONS - In this case food.
Finally MILITARY INTERVENTION
These commissions were designed to help people. From freeing slaves to fighting disease.
To continue the analogy these then would be visitors to the school to help you out like connexions or enterprise.
So good aims... why so pants?
NO USA !!!!
Big and cumbersome organisation...just look!
Never follows through with their rulings!
Got it? Okay...
Imagine these as the Head and Deputies - they make all the important decisions.
