  League of Nations Mandate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The mandates were fundamentally different from protectorates in that the Mandatory power undertook obligations to the inhabitants of the territory and to the League of Nations.
The Class B mandate assigned to Belgium was Ruanda-Urundi; Togoland and the Cameroons were assigned in part to France and in part to the UK; Tanganyika was assigned to the UK.
The Class C mandates consisted of South West Africa which was administered by South Africa; former German Samoa assigned to New Zealand; New Guinea and Nauru assigned to Australia and the German islands in the Pacific north of the equator which were assigned to Japan as the Japanese Mandate of the Pacific Islands.

 British Mandate of Palestine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The British Mandate of Palestine was a territory in the Middle East including the modern territories of Israel, Jordan, and the West Bank and Gaza Strip, formerly belonging to the Ottoman Empire, which the League of Nations entrusted to the United Kingdom to administer in the aftermath of World War I as a Mandate Territory.
The Palestine Mandate was an explicit document regarding Britain's responsibilities and powers of administration in Palestine including "secur[ing] the establishment of the Jewish national home", and "safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all the inhabitants of Palestine".
In 1936-1939 the mandate experienced an upsurge in militant Arab nationalism that became known as the Great Uprising and, "The Arab Revolt." The revolt was triggered by increased Jewish immigration, primarily Jews fleeing Nazi persecution in Germany as well as rising anti-Semitism in Eastern Europe.

 Legal Definition of Mandate
The contract of mandate may be dissolved by a change in the state of the parties; as if either party becomes insane, or, being a woman, marries before the execution of the mandate.
Mandates were the instructions which the emperor addressed to public functionaries, which were to serve as rules for their conduct.
These mandates resembled those of the pro-consuls, the mandata jurisdictio, and were ordinarily binding on the legates or lieutenants of the emperor of the imperial provinces, and, there they had the authority of the principal edicts.

 The Avalon Project : The Palestine Mandate
Whereas by the afore-mentioned Article 22 (paragraph 8), it is provided that the degree of authority, control or administration to be exercised by the Mandatory, not having been previously agreed upon by the Members of the League, shall be explicitly defined by the Council of the League Of Nations;
The Mandatory shall be entitled at all times to use the roads, railways and ports of Palestine for the movement of armed forces and the carriage of fuel and supplies.
The consent of the Council of the League of Nations is required for any modification of the terms of this mandate.

Information about mandates could be kept in a separate agency recordkeeping requirements database, or documented, through this element, as part of the agency’s overall set of metadata for recordkeeping.
The mandate exists in a discretionary standard (eg the Australian Standard on Records Management (AS 4390) or the ISO 9000 series of Quality Management standards), which recommends best practice in particular areas.
The mandate states that a record shall be kept (it may or may not state for how long).

 Boston.com / News / Boston Globe / Opinion / Op-ed / Not a mandate, but a contract
For the second presidential election in a row, surveys of the voters showed an electorate that continues to be deeply divided on basic questions of security and domestic policy as well as deeply divided culturally and racially.
The meaning for the next administration in Washington is that claims of a mandate from yesterday's vote are certain to ring just as hollow as they did after the nail-biter four years ago between George Bush and Al Gore.
It is a simple lesson George W. Bush refused to heed after 2000, deciding instead to govern as if he had been elected in a landslide with a mandate to lead a conservative revolution.

 ACP Observer, September 2003 - E-prescribing: the next 'unfunded' mandate for doctors?
Because the legislation would also greatly expand the drugs that are covered under Medicare, physicians, pharmacists and health plans would have little choice but to use e-RX systems for all of their prescriptions, as it would not be feasible to use e-prescribing for Medicare-covered drugs and paper prescriptions for other medications.
A federal mandate to require that all prescriptions be written and transmitted electronically within three years, as H.R. 1 proposes to do, attempts to "force feed" unproven systems and technologies on patients and clinicians.
ACP was the first national physician organization to express strong opposition to the mandate in the bill passed by the House of Representatives.

 The British Mandate for Palestine
The Palestine Mandate was born out of the ambitions of the British and their promises to the French, the Arabs and the Zionists, as set forth in the Balfour declaration, the Sykes Picot Agreement and the McMahon Correspondence.
The League Mandate system was tailored to match the colonialist ambitions of the British and French in fact, while paying lip service to the American wishful thinking about self-determination.
While the Mandate was derived from the Balfour Declaration and based on it, it amplified and interpreted the declaration beyond the meaning of the original wording, perhaps unintentionally.

 Zionist Century | Concepts | British Rule
In the history of Palestine/Eretz Yisrael, the Mandate refers to the period 1920-1948, with its borders excluding Transjordan from 1922 onwards.
Britain was awarded the Mandate for Palestine by the League of Nations at the San Remo Conference in 1920, although its terms of reference were ratified only two year later.
Sources concur that the conference was, in fact, part of a calculated plan to enable Britain to present itself as an "honest broker" -- although she was in fact already committed to a conciliatory policy towards the Arabs, in face of the upcoming Second World War.

 New Rules Project - Agriculture - Biodiesel Mandate - Minnesota
In March 2002, Minnesota enacted the nation's first biodiesel mandate that would require nearly all diesel fuel sold in the state contain at least 2 percent biodiesel by 2005 (earlier if certain conditions are met).
First, the mandate does not go into effect until June 30, 2005, and only if a sufficient quantity of biodiesel to satisfy the mandate is produced in the state.
The total amount eligible to be reimbursed must decline by ten percent each year after the mandate is effective and must end at 20 percent in the eighth year.

 Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
This resolution was subsequently adopted by the Economic and Social Council as resolution 1982/35 and established the mandate of the Special Rapporteur.
It should be noted that in its resolution, the Commission widened the title of the mandate to include "extrajudicial" as well as "summary or arbitrary" executions.
This change indicates that the members of the Commission have adopted a broader approach to the mandate on executions to include all violations of the right to life as guaranteed by a large number of international human rights instruments.

 Zhou Dynasty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Zhou dynasty lasted longer than any other in Chinese history, and the use of iron was introduced to China during this time.
In the Chinese historical tradition, the rulers of the Zhou displaced the Yin and legitimized their rule by invoking the Mandate of Heaven, the notion that the ruler (the "son of heaven") governed by divine right but that his dethronement would prove that he had lost the mandate.
The Mandate of Heaven established the Zhou's assumed divine ancestor, the Tian-Huang-Shangdi, above the Shang's divine ancestor, the Shangdi.

 British Mandate 1920-1946
Under the terms of the Mandate, Britain's principal obligation was to facilitate the implementation of the Balfour Declaration of November 2, 1917, which pledged "the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people."(2) No territorial restrictions whatsoever - neither east nor west of the Jordan River were placed on the Jewish National Home.
In fact, the Mandate stipulated that Britain was to "facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage close settlement by Jews on the land."(3)
The Paris Peace Conference was held in January-June 1919 and ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919.

 The Missing Mandate
Truth-challenged statements are to be expected from Cheney, who continues to peddle the now entirely-discredited theory that Iraq posed a threat that necessitated the invasion and occupation of that country, and who still stands by the fiddled figures that were used to justify the administration's fiscally fraudulent overhaul of Medicare.
In the language of American politics, the term "mandate" refers to a sweeping electoral win that confers upon the victor the authority not merely to govern but to radically alter the course of the country.
During that same 100 year period, the victors in 23 of 25 presidential elections won by wider margins in the Electoral College than did Bush — the only narrower wins were those of Bush in the disputed election of 2000 and Woodrow Wilson in 1916.

 [No title]
The Mandate provided that the evidentiary hearing was "only for the purpose of assessing her current medical condition, the nature of the new medical treatment and their acceptance in the relevant scientific community, the probable efficacy of these new treatments and any other factors the trial court deems relevant".
In response to the Mandate, the court directed that a physical examination of Terry Schiavo be done by her treating physician.
In the event the Motion for Relief from Judgement is denied, the Mandate also requires this court to follow the dictates of the prior Mandate of the Second District Court of Appeal and "enter an order scheduling the withdrawal of life- support".

 Centerfield: Mandate
As I was drafting this post, the "mandate" issue was also raised as a topic on Hardball.
Now you can go to the dictionary and use it to defend the idea that mandate means the same thing as a simple authorization, but then you're changing the traditional meaning of the word as it has been used to describe political results.
His real mandate, if he is smart, is to look to the middle and make us happy by doing the nation's business in a responsible and bipartisan way.

 Mandate
A mandate is a contract by which one person designates another person to represent him or her, in other words act on his or her behalf, in legal dealings with a third party.
The mandator must also reimburse the mandatary for all reasonable expenses incurred in executing the mandate and pay any remuneration to which he or she is entitled.
There also exists a type of mandate intended to protect the person and well-being of the mandator and the mandator’s property: the mandate given in anticipation of the mandator’s incapacity.

 Matthew Yglesias: Mandate Time
Bush can blather on about a mandate, but the reason he'll support Christian conservatives is because the republican party needs their turnout, not because of some mandate or sense that he owes them for his election.
The Bushies certainly do have a mandate this time: the fact that they received not 5 - which is what they deserve - but 51% of the popular vote speaks volume.
This mandate bullshit is crucial test proof that all that sophomoric bullshit about paradigms and deconstruction and hegemony and dominant culture and memems and blah blah blah is operationally worthless bullshit since those who like that type of talk swallow mandate bullshit like it was mother's milk.

A map showing countries commonly considered to be part of the Middle East The Middle East is a region comprising the lands around the southern and eastern parts of the Mediterranean Sea, a territory that extends from the eastern Mediterranean Sea to the Persian Gulf.
The entire territory is sometimes referred to as the British Mandate of Palestine.
On 29 November 1947 in UN General Assembly Resolution 181 it was stated in the first paragraph, that "The Mandate for Palestine shall terminate as soon as possible but in any case not later than 1 August 1948", thus leaving no option for continuation after the given date.

 The League of Nations Mandate Provision
The basis of the mandate system was Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations, which gave broad authority to the mandate powers regarding preparation for self-rule.
This provision of the League Covenant formed the basis of the Mandate for Palestine of 1922.
The character of the mandate must differ according to the stage of the development of the people, the geographical situation of the territory, its economic conditions and other similar circumstances.

 Defining Bush's "Mandate"
While White House officials tout the total vote count for Bush as evidence of wide support, the increase in voter turnout and the size of the U.S. population also means that greater than usual numbers of voters opposed the victorious candidate.
If a "mandate" is the same as an uncontested victory, then George W. Bush has that-- but so does just about every president, so it's hardly newsworthy.
It is understandable that the Bush administration would tout its victory as evidence of a "mandate" for pursuing its second-term agenda.

Iraq was carved out of the old Ottoman Empire by direction of the UK government on January 10 1919, and on November 11, 1920 it became a League of Nations mandate under British control with the name "State of Iraq".
At the end of the war, ownership of and access to Iraq's petroleum was split five ways: 23.75% each to the UK, France, The Netherlands and the USA, with the remaining 5% going to a private oil coroporation headed by Calouste Gulbenkian.
The British designated Iraq as a kingdom and placed the country under the rule of Emir Faisal ibn Husayn, brother of the new ruler of neighboring Jordan, Abdullah ibn Husayn, a member of the Hashemite family.

The Commission initially had a two-year mandate, which followed a five-month preparatory phase (January-May 1998) and it was expected that the Commission's report would be issued by June 2000.
All participants recognised from the outset that a two-year Commission would only be able to reach conclusions on a number of questions, while others would need to be addressed in new initiatives beyond the life of the Commission.
Although it included the review and assessment of a range of specific cases, the Commission was not mandated to adjudicate on specific disputes.
