This is the first and the shorter of two chapters that establishes United Nations Constitutional Assistance’s (UNCA) historical background. UNCA equates to the internationalization of the Western liberal Constitution which provides a blue print for territorial administration. This chapter, therefore, provides the historical context in which the Constitution’s conceptual ties with territorial administration were forged. It establishes that from 1700-1960, Western colonial powers imposed the Constitution to establish foreign territorial administration to achieve common ends: free markets, rule of law, good governance, and civilized practices. In this way, Colonial powers colonized Third World peoples, ostensibly acting as trustees to ‘civilize’ them. This sets the stage for tracing UNCA’s origins non-chronologically (in the next chapter) through Ralph Wilde’s Family of Foreign Territorial Administration (FTA) policy institutions, of which Colonialism is the first.

Keywords:   Colonialism, Constitutionalism, civilized standards, foreign territorial administration, free markets, international trusteeship, jurisdiction, Ralph Wilde’s Family of international trusteeship Policy Institutions, civilizing mission
