 Lessons of History: the Paris Peace Conference of 1919   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Paris was in the six months between January and June 1919 the centre of world power, perhaps even a sort of world government.
The Allies met in Paris in January 1919 for what they expected would be a preliminary conference for two to three weeks, where they would hammer out common peace terms and then call representatives from Germany and the other defeated nations and have a full-blown peace conference.
In 1919 people were thinking in ways which would have been alien to anyone in 1815 but which are familiar to us today: the whole notion of democratic participation in foreign policy, of ethnic nationalism, and of self-determination.

We should understand peace, order and good government as entailing a continuum of responsibilities to protect that start at prevention and go right through to reconstruction and potentially bring to bear all the expertise and capabilities of the Canadian government and our national community.
The peace, order and good government program for Canada entails, first of all, a coordination of this activity and a better use of our own government.
A peace, order and good government agency that is well-led has to find these people, work with their departments, create networks of people working in the same field and create a deployment strategy and the training regimens that would work through various deployment scenarios and test their capabilities against hard reality.

 First World War.com - Primary Documents - Dutch Newspaper Editorial Against the Terms of the Paris Peace Conference, ...
With Germany's decision to seek an armistice - or face domestic as well as military collapse - arrangements were set in place to convene a peace conference in Paris; the city was unanimously selected by the Allied powers.
The peace conditions imposed upon Germany are so hard, so humiliating, that even those who have the smallest expectation of a "peace of justice" are bound to be deeply disappointed.
This "peace" offered to Germany may differ in form from the one imposed upon conquered nations by the old Romans, but certainly not in essence.

 At the Paris Peace Conference, James T. Shotwell
If the international agreements of the Conference of Paris were to be made rigid it would seem as though much more were accomplished than to leave them frankly incomplete, but carried along as far as is possible now and fixed so they can be adjusted to changing conditions.
Conference convenes; President Poincaré welcomes it and President Wilson nominates Premier Clemenceau of France as permanent Chairman; he is unanimously elected by the delegates.
It is important to note that the Inquiry at that date fully expected that the Peace Conference would include representatives of the Central Powers, and that the American Delegation would be composed of representatives of the Executive and the Senate, a representative at large, and the Secretary of State.

“The Paris Peace Conference of 1919, at the end of World War One, was an extraordinary event which brought together many of the most powerful people of the world,” says MacMillan, the great-granddaughter of Lloyd George, the British Prime Minister who was one of the three main architects of the Treaty of Versailles.
In Peacemakers: The Paris Conference of 1919, MacMillan contests the widely held conviction that the Treaty of Versailles led to the rise of Hitler and the onset of the Second World War.
The peacemakers of 1919 faced what was in reality an impossible task; they brought to it mixed, if often high motives, but an inadequate understanding of the hopelessness of their objective.

 Macedonia at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919
The Bulgarian activities at the Peace Conference in Paris could not but meet with opposition from the Macedonian revolutionary organization since their purpose was to thwart the interests of the Macedonian nation.
So the Peace Conference is obliged to destroy the memories of those events and to prevent more tragedies by giving the Macedonian people what they want, that is, their holy right to decide their own future.
At the peace conference it was recognized as being more or less a political principle and applied only in cases when it contributed to the interests of the major powers.

In the very first words of her prize-winning book, Peacemakers, Margaret Macmillan says, "In 1919 Paris was the capital of the world." In the aftermath of the First World War, the great and good of all nations were there to reshape the world.
New nations sprang into existence during lunches in expensive Parisian hotels; borders that had lasted centuries were altered with the stroke of a pen; empires that had outlived their sell-by date were unceremoniously dismantled.
Macmillan is rightly dismissive of the notion that the peace devised at Paris was so flawed that another war was inevitable.

 Edward Benes Biography | Encyclopedia of World Biography
The League's failure to maintain peace and France's refusal to honor its commitment to defend Czechoslovakia against German aggression led to the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia in 1938, and Europe's postwar prostration rendered any challenge to the Soviet-backed coup d'etat in 1948 impossible.
In this position Benes distinguished himself as the leader of the Czechoslovak delegation to the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, and he held this office in all the Cabinets until he was elected second president of the Czechoslovak Republic in 1935.
The Munich Conference of Sept. 28, 1938, awarded Germany the Sudeten portions of Czechoslovakia.

 Faisal-Weizmann Agreement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Faisal-Weizmann Agreement was signed on January 3, 1919, by Emir Faisal (son of the King of Hejaz) and Chaim Weizmann (later President of the World Zionist Organization) as part of the Paris Peace Conference, 1919 settling disputes stemming from World War I.
On January 3, 1919, they signed the written agreement which is known by their names, see Paris Peace Conference, 1919.
The outcome of the peace conference itself did not provide the vast Arab state that Faisal desired mainly because the British and French had struck their own secret Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916 dividing the Middle East between their own spheres of influence, and soon Faisal began to express doubts about cooperation with the Zionist movement.
