What Was The Paris Peace Agreement

The nature of the peace conference differed significantly from the great European peace conference of the last century: the Congress of Vienna (1814-15). An unprecedented aspect of the conference was the concerted pressure exerted by a women`s commission on delegates, which attempted to establish and consolidate women`s fundamental social, economic and political rights, such as the right to vote, within the framework of peace. Although they were denied seats at the Paris conference, the leadership of Marguerite de Witt-Schlumberger, president of the French Union for women`s voting rights, organized the convening of an interallied conference on women (IAWC), held from February 10 to April 10, 1919. The IAWC defended Wilson, then the other delegates of the Paris Conference, in order to include women in its committees, and managed to get the hearing of the committees of international labour legislation of the conference and then of the League of Nations. One of the main concrete results of IAWC`s work was Article 7 of the League of Nations: « All positions within the framework or within the League, including the secretariat, are open to both men and women. » In general, the CBI has placed the issue of women`s rights at the centre of the new world order founded in Paris. [67] [68] According to Finnish historian Jussi Hanhimki, South Vietnam was « put under pressure because of the triangular diplomacy that isolated it to accept an agreement that virtually ensured its collapse. » [21] During the negotiations, Kissinger stated that 18 months after an agreement, the United States would not intervene militarily, but that it could intervene before. In the history of the Vietnam War, this has been described as a « decent interval. » [22] In the context of current expectations, the Paris peace treaties have almost inevitably disappointed everyone and failed to achieve their ultimate goal: the creation of a safe, peaceful and lasting world order. Contract negotiations have also been weakened by the absence of other important nations. Russia had fought as one of the allies until its new Bolshevik government withdrew from the war in December 1917. The Bolshevik decision to reject Russia`s unpaid financial debts to the Allies and to publish the texts of secret agreements between allies on the post-war period angered the Allies.
