Chapter Summary

At the close of World War I there were international calls for the prosecution and punishment of those responsible for war crimes. When it came to drafting the original treaty the Allied Powers, despite relying on the essence of the penalty clauses initially prepared by the Commission, included somewhat different ?penalty provisions? in the final text of the Treaty of Versailles. After the conclusion of the Treaty of Versailles, and while the Allied and Associated Powers were still concerned with the matter of negotiating peace treaties with Turkey and Hungary, the Council of the League of Nations decided to put into effect Article 14 of the Treaty of Versailles. The International Law Association is a scientific body that was originally called ?The Association for the Reform and Codification of the Law of Nations?, and was founded in October 1873.
