Repertoire of the Practice of the Security Council: Supplement 1946-1951

This publication serves as a guide to the proceedings of the Security Council. The first issue covers the years 1946-1951. It deals with a period when the Council’s practice, in response to changes and new challenges on the international scene, considerably expanded in scope in the areas of conflict prevention, peacekeeping and electoral assistance. The Repertoire is designed to assist government officials, practitioners on international law, academics and all those interested in the work of the UN to gain a better understanding of the framework within which it operates.
