Established in 1920, the League of Nations evolved out of the Paris Peace Conference. One of its objectives was to assist former territories evolve to self-government through Mandates. In the Middle East there were British Mandates for Palestine and Iraq  and a French Mandate for Syria/Lebanon. Annually the League reviewed the political status of each Mandate through reports submitted to it and through public review  of those reports.
