VI The American Peace Structure on the Eve of World War II

The great increase in the sentiment of continental solidarity. . .is due to precisely two facts that took place eight years ago, that is, the enunciation of the Good Neighbor policy and the rise of Adolf Hitler to power, to absolute power, in Germany.

RICARDO ALFARO, 1941


The Inter-American Security Structure
B Y SEPTEMBER 1, 1939, the inter-American security structure had attained rather grandiose and bewilderingly complex proportions. It comprised two poorly-balanced wings of unequal age and size: provisions for the organization of American peace, and provisions relating to overseas threats to American peace. It was not until 1936 that construction was started on the second wing; until that time the security concern of the American nations had been confined strictly to inter-American relations. Most of the work on the first wing had also been of rather recent date, for the great multilateral treaties, conventions, and protocols, which constituted the fundamental elements of the American peace system, dated only from 1923. The ramifications of the security organization can best be illustrated graphically by a topical outline.I. Development of the inter-American security system to 1939.
A. Development of peace procedures to 1923.
1. Inter-American bilateral arbitration treaties.1

All arbitration treaties and all arbitral clauses of other treaties which were signed between or among American nations before the close of 1910 and duly ratified are collected in William R. Manning (ed.), Arbitration Treaties Among The American Nations To The Close Of The Year 1910 ( New York, 1924).
