How was world peace sought in the 20th century?

On the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the League of Nations, this exhibition explores some of the collections of LSE Library and the Women’s Library at LSE that help answer that question.

It includes international organisations such as the League of Nations established as part of the Paris Peace Conference that ended the First World War and whose principle mission was to maintain peace.

The exhibition has been curated in partnership with David Stevenson (LSE International History), who explores the foundation of the League of Nations, the Abyssinian Crisis and the Peace Ballot, the League of Nations at Work, and ends with the foundation of the United Nations (UN).
