YYYY.MM.DD EVENT
   
1907.10.18 Convention (XII) relative to the Creation of an International Prize Court adopted and opened for signatures.
The 1907 Hague Convention for an International Prize Court never came into force. Nevertheless, it was the first international agreement intended to create a permanent international tribunal of the kind. Convention XII of the Conference reflected the proposals submitted by the British and German delegations at the 1907 Hague Peace Conference. This Convention was meant to remain in force for twelve years, then to be renewed for six years at a time, unless denounced.
   
1909.06.30 the date for the deposit of ratifications. Although the convention was signed by some 33 states, the ratifications were never deposited.
   
1908.02 British Government suggested a conference to agree upon generally recognized principles of international law within the field of maritime economic warfare which the proposed Court was to observe.
   
1908.12-1909.02 a number of States attended this London Naval Conference and drew up the London Declaration. From the outset, the Declaration met with strong opposition, notably by Great Britain and the USA. An additional protocol was drafted in September 1910. However, ratifications were still not forthcoming.
