Creation Date



The League and Manchuria: The Third Phase of the Chinese-Japanese Conflict, October 25-December 31, 1931. Geneva Special Studies, vol. II, no. 12. Geneva, Switzerland: Geneva Research Information Committee, 1931.

The Geneva Special Studies were a series of journals published on global conflicts that were so severe the League of Nations stepped in to help maintain world peace. This series focuses on a dispute over Manchuria between China and Japan. That dispute, as well as pushback over rising Japanese influence in China, would lead to the Second Sino-Japanese War fought as part of World War II. The studies focus on a recounting of the League of Nations action with both countries, and detail items such as troop movement, negotiations between the countries, and international action that influenced each nation.

Volume II, number 12 covers the third phase of the conflict which lasted from October 25 to December 31, 1931. This period follows the adjournment of the Council and includes an evaluation period during which both parties were supposed to adhere to prior determinations until a new resolution was passed. This point of the conflict marked rising resistance from Japan to the Council of the League and withdrawal from the situation, a resistance that would ultimately lead to Japan leaving the League of Nations.
