The Impact of the 1990 and 1995 United Nations verification studies on today's political environment

The author provides a historical overview of United Nations verification efforts beginning with early General Assembly resolutions leading to the two governmental expert studies on the subject conducted in 1990 and 1995. She highlights the substantially different political perspectives brought to bear on the issue when each study was undertaken and how verification’s evolving roles have met new challenges facing the Organization. She also notes the outstanding and recurrent themes in both reports, the impact of those studies on the current political environment, and suggests their influence on the concept of civil society verification today.
