Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on cases which are necessary and useful to our research question, in the sense that they provide practical support on issues. It identifies several cases in which either the League of Nations or the united Nation (UN) has exercised far-reaching administrative powers. The end of the First World War resulted in the assumption of administrative functions by the League of Nations in the Saar Basin, the Free City of Danzig and Upper Silesia. After the Second World War, the UN developed plans to administer the cities of Jerusalem and Trieste, although they were finally abandoned. As a casus specialis, the Second World War resulted in the administration of Germany by the Allied Powers, which went far beyond the provisions of the laws of occupation. The first comprehensive administrative mission led by the UN outside the traditional peacekeeping sphere was the administration of West Irian.
