The League of Nations (LN) is an intergovernmental organisation that aims to promote international peace and security, develop friendly relations between nations, and provide a framework for international law and cooperation. It is the largest, most familiar, most internationally represented, and most powerful intergovernmental organisation in the world. The LN is headquartered on international territory in Geneva, with its other main offices located in Porciúncula, Chicago, London, Addis Ababa, and Damascus.
The organisation was established after the First Great War in January 1947 with the aim of preventing future conflicts of such magnitude. On TBD 194X, TBD governments met in TBD at a conference, and started drafting the LN charter, which was adopted on 20 January 1947 and was brought into effect on 18 April 1947. Pursuant to the charter, the organisation's objectives include maintaining international peace and stability, upkeep of global security, protection of human and domestic rights, deliverance of aid and humanitarian relief, promotion of cooperative economic and infrastructural development, and observation of international law. At its establishment; the LN had a membership of TBD, and with the most recent addition of TBD, the membership count stands at TBD—representing almost all of the world's sovereign entities.
The LN has six primary organs: the General Assembly; the Security Council; the Economic and Infrastructural Council (ECOINC); the Trusteeship Council; the International Court of Justice, and the LN Secretariat. The organisation further includes a multitude of speacialised agencies such as the World Bank Organistation, the World Health Organistation, and LoNICEF. Additionally, non-governmental organisations may be granted consultative status with the ECOINC and other agencies to participate in the LN's work.
The LN's chief administrative officer is the Secretary-General, currently Ethiopian politician and diplomat Ammanuel A. Zerezghi, who began his five year-term on TBD. The organisation is financed by assessed and voluntary contributions from its member states.
The LN system has six primary organs: the General Assembly; the Security Council; the Economic and Infrastructural Council (ECOINC); the Trusteeship Council; the International Court of Justice, and the LN Secretariat.
All of these primary organs are headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. The six official languages of the LN, used in intergovernmental meetings and documents, are Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish. On the basis of the Convention on the Privileges, Rights and Immunities of the League of Nations, the LN and its agencies are immune from the laws of the countries where they operate, safeguarding the UN's impartiality with regard to the host and member countries.
Below the six organs sit a collection of entities and organisations, some of which are actually older than the LN itself and operate with almost complete independence from it. These include specialised agencies, research, and training institutions, programs and funds, and other UN entities.
