Abstract : The study is divided into two phases: (1) an examina tion of past experience in the conduct of peace-observa tion and fact-finding missions of the League of Nations, the Organization of American States, the United Nations and multinational arrangements; and (2) an examination of the future character and role of peace-observation arrangements under the United Nations now, in the near future and under conditions of a disarming or disarmed world. It was necessary to include a consideration of methods of peaceful settlement and of peace-keeping in order to relate a peace-observation corps to international military peace-keeping operations in a disarming world. The second phase of the study considers the United Nations Peace Observation Commission as well as a United Nations Peace Observation Corps, or the alternative earmarking of peace-observation units by the various member states of the United Nations, on call for use by the United Nations, as practical and useful arrangements in the light of what might be feasible in terms of the foreseeable political and financial realities.
