Chapter Summary

During the discussions about the structure of the United Nations at the preparatory conference of Dumbarton Oaks, and the foundation conference of San Francisco in the first half of 1945 (History of the Foundation of the UN), it became necessary to decide the future of the mandated territories of the League of Nations, i.e. the former German and Turkish colonies of the First World War that had been entrusted, in the framework of the peace treaties, to mandate powers for administration under control of the League of Nations. Within the trusteeship system provided in the UN Charter the General Assembly, the Security Council and the Trusteeship Council - according to the enumeration in Article 7 of the UN Charter also a principal organ - control, in cooperation, the administration of the trust territories.
