Abstract

Rather than simply an anomaly of the international system, the membership of colonies at the League of Nations was part of a policy to re-legitimise ties to the Empire after WW1. Membership occurred alongside seismic political changes within the British Empire, as it began to devolve into the Commonwealth. This dissertation argues that colonial membership to the League of Nations was a significant part of this process, due to the symbolic signs of sovereignty and recognition of membership.
