    • Disarmament
      • The aim of the League was for all countries to reduce their military capability to a minimum
    • To enforce the Treaty of Versailles
      • Despite the treaty being far from perfect it was important for the League to support it. Otherwise there could well have been chaos.
      • So that all countries were seen as singing from the same hymn sheet they all had to sign the couenant of the League.
