Geneva Protocols, state treaty between Austria on the one hand and the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Czechoslovakia on the other, concluded on the initiative of the League of Nations on October 4, 1922. Austria was granted a 20-year League of Nations Loan (about 650 million gold kronen) to facilitate the introduction of the schilling currency to stop post-war inflation (Economic Reconstruction). The G.P. committed Austria to maintaining its independence; the signatories guaranteed Austria´s integrity. The G. P. were the reason why the Austro-German customs union of 1931 was prevented.
