For the first time in 1867, the peace movement acquired continental counterparts and an extended franchise helped Henry Richard enter the parliament. There are also other significant events that contributed to the recovery of the peace movement including the Franco-Prussian War of 1870–1 which not only prompted the establishment of a Workmen's Peace Association but sparked interest in international law, arbitration, and codification among the academics, intellectuals, and ‘the leading jurists of Christendom’. Peace activists, however, had to face violence over the Eastern Question and the Afghan Wars but seemed to be making steady progress as the Egyptian crisis blew up in June 1882. The Anti-Aggression League also faltered despite having protected itself from the peace-at-any-price mantra.
