Abstract
Seventy years ago, the United Nations Charter was signed in San Francisco. The world, coming from the throes of two world wars was determined to establish lasting peace for humanity. A first attempt had been made in 1919 with the formation of the League of Nations. The League began crumbling at the advent of the First World War due to its own ineffectiveness and doublespeak. Initially, the covenant of the League of Nations embodied some mechanisms of conflict resolution and as a predecessor of the League of Nation, the UN Charter is even an upgrade of these dispute resolution mechanisms. This paper sets out with a brief history of both organisations, examines the mechanisms of conflict resolution in the Covenant and the Charter, narrows down to the effectiveness of the current regime and finally makes some recommendations.
