A British propaganda poster of World War I, concerning the guarantee of Belgian neutrality

Guarantee – a method to ensure the fulfilment of international obligations, when a state promises to help the other state to fulfil its obligations, when some third party hinders that.[1]

Previously other methods to ensure fulfilment of international obligations, like oaths or receiving hostages, were also called guarantees.[1]

One example of such an obligation can be neutrality.[1] For example, before World War I neutrality of Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg had been guaranteed.[1]
