In the 1920s There were disputes about countries' borders. The League's job was to solve them. These issues were handled by the Conference of Ambassadors, which was conformed by leading politicians from the main members of the league (Britain, France and Italy).
One of the main border disputes in the 1920s. Poland took over the capital of Lithuania, Vilna. The league protested to Poland, but she didn't give Vilna back to Lithuania, and France and Britain were not prepared to act against this country.
The Geneva Protocol:
After the corfu incident, the stability of the league was weak. Britain and France created the Geneva Protocol in 1924: It claimed that if 2 members of the league had a dispute they would have to allow the league to solve the problem and accept it's decisions.
Before the plan was applied, there was an election in Britain. The new conservative government refused to sign the protocol: They were concerned that Britain may have been forced to agree with something that wasn't one of her concerns. France and Britain hoped this protocol would strengthen the league, but instead it weakened it.
Geneva is located in Switzerland. It is a global city, a financial center, and a worldwide center for diplomacy. She flourished in the 19th and 20th centuries, becoming the seat of many international organizations.
