Mandate (international law)
In international law, a mandate is a binding obligation issued from an inter-governmental organization like the United Nations to a country which is bound to follow the instructions of the organisation.
Before the creation of the United Nations, all mandates were issued from the League of Nations.An example of such a mandate would be Australian New Guinea, which is officially the Territory of Papua.
