Georgia and The League of Nations - 100th Anniversary

On January 10, 1920, the world's first international organization was established, following the Paris Peace Conference (1919-1920) that ended the First World War I (1914-1918).

The primary goals, as stated in its Covenant, included preventing wars through collective security and disarmament and settling international disputes through negotiation and arbitration.

The Covenant of the League of Nations was signed on 28 June 1919 as Part I of the Treaty of Versailles, and it became effective together with the rest of the Treaty on 10 January 1920. The first meeting of the Council of the League took place on 16 January 1920, and the first meeting of Assembly of the League took place on 15 November 1920.

Thanks to the Total Digital Access to the League of Nations Archives Project (LONTAD) free online access of the archives of the League of Nations (1920-1946) became possible. The project was made possible through a generous donation of a private Swiss foundation.
