The European Union has acquired supranational status because of the power vested in it by its Member States, which takes over the powers of its states. For example, the European Union has its own currency and has mandated trade agreements. The other organisations listed do not have the same power as the European Union. The League of Nations was the idea of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson. In the wake of World War II, Wilson published his fourteen points that should preserve peace and order in the world. Part of the fourteen points was the proposal of a “League of Nations” that would act as an international arbiter in conflicts and impose peace, prosperity and freedom of the seas. Wilson received a lot of international support, but was unable to win the support of his own congress. Congress in the United States must ratify all treaties signed by the U.S. government. America was then resolutely isolationist and Congress refused to allow the United States to become members of the League of Nations.
As a result, the league continued without the world`s most powerful nation, one of the many reasons why it would prove ineffective in the interwar years. The United Nations was established in 1946, shortly after the end of World War II. The United Nations` mission is to preserve peace, deter conflict and promote prosperity and equality in the world. It has a peacekeeping force composed of forces from its various Member States and often sent into conflicts (particularly civil wars) around the world in an attempt to restore order and peace.

Founded in 1919, shortly after the end of The First World War, the League of Nations was the first attempt by a global organization to prevent conflict and promote peace and prosperity. It is obvious that it was not possible to promote peace, because the Second World War broke out in 1939. The League of Nations was replaced by the United Nations in 1946.
