The Geneva Protocol 1924

  • From the Corfu incident it was clear that the League of Nations could be undermined by its own members and something needed to be done to stop this
  • In 1924 Britain and France drew up the Geneva Protocol which said that if two members were in dispute they would ask the League to help and they would have to accept there decision
  • This was meant to strengthen the League of Nations
  • However, before the plan could be put to effect there was an election in Britain and the Conservative government that won the election refused to sign the Protocol as they thought it would mean Britain had to agree to something against there own interests
  • So the Protocol weakened the League instead of strengthening it
