MINORITIES

By treaty stipulations in connection with the transfer of territory to new states or reconstructed states “obligations of international concern” with respect to the treatment of persons belonging to racial, religious, or linguistic minorities were “placed under the guaranty of the League of Nations”. In extension of this system [Page 117]of protection as provided at the Paris Peace Conference, the Council of the League obtained declarations of like purport from states possessing minorities when they were admitted to membership of the League. In addition, several treaties between states dealt with their minorities and by their terms or in practice became assimilated to the guaranty system. In all cases the members of the Council could call attention to infractions of the guaranties, for the protection of which the Council possessed wide powers.

The League of Nations published two compilations concerning minority obligations as follows:
