ABSTRACT
This article analyzes the role of peace agencies and treaties in maintaining international relations and foreign policies after World War I. The questions of reparations arose from the drafting of the Treaty of Versailles. The treaty adopting the general principle of compensation for damage to the civilian populations of the Allies, provided that the amount of such damage should be ascertained by an inter-allied commission called the Reparation Commission. Leaving the unsettled question of reparations to the Reparation Commission meant leaving the question to the governments of Great Britain, France, Italy and Belgium. Another entity that was involved in peace relations was the League of Nations, although the United States failed to enter the alliance which would have given a more powerful and sorely needed cooperation in rehabilitating the world.
