Abstract

The Mandates System and the Trusteeship System of the League of Nations and the United Nations respectively are examples of international responsibility to certain dependent peoples. These Systems, however, have failed to resolve the uncertain political status of the areas involved. Does sovereignty lie with the international organization, the mandatory power, or the dependent territory itself? A classic case in this controversy over political sovereignty is presented by the territory known as South West Africa.
