This chapter shows how new world order (NWO) architects thinking developed in what might be called the area of 'global security' from the period of the First World War until the present. One of the key Wilsonian principles encapsulated in the Fourteen Points was the creation of an international organisation that would help to solve the problems of what Inis Claude rightly calls an 'interstate' system. The chapter discusses the failure of the League of Nations (LON) and the problem of how to solve the security problems of Europe came a renewed belief in the idea of a global organisation. It focuses on what can be seen to be the enduring debates about security in the international organisation context, those on the causes of war and the conditions for peace. The chapter describes the mechanisms of the LON and United Nation (UN) agencies.
