The proposal for a League of Nations was the fourteenth of President Woodrow Wilson’s 14 Points, which were the terms he took to the Paris Peace Conference at the end of World War I. The League was designed to handle global diplomatic problems before they turned into wars and was the most controversial part of the final treaty. Critics in the United States Senate feared that it would require America to be involved in international conflicts.
