3 February 1919 marked the first meeting of the League of Nations. Inspired by principles advocated by US President Woodrow Wilson, the League was one of the first major efforts to cooperatively manage international relations, providing collective security and peace. Whilst the League eventually failed to achieve its mission, it served as a predecessor to other multilateral bodies, including the United Nations. The multilateral framework of these bodies found future expression in organizations such as the World Trade Organization (WTO). Researchers at Frontier examine international organizations and different models of cooperation, including but not limited to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America and the WTO Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures.
