“If Eden Gives Way We Are Lost”

Abstract

Larger international events continued to shape how member states of the League viewed the problem of international terrorism. The efforts to restrict international terrorism by convention and judicial process became increasingly technical and symbolic as other threats to global peace became more important. The League’s committee on terrorism held its second session in 1936. They drafted two conventions: one to criminalize international terrorism and the other to establish an international criminal court. The Committee’s final session was in 1937. After more than two years of work, the Council accepted the revised drafts and agreed to summon a diplomatic conference on terrorism in November, a decision that fulfilled all conditions of the Hungaro-Yugoslav settlement. Britain could claim success, but it was already dealing with larger concerns.
