With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, the Yearbook of the United Nations is the most authoritative reference work available on the activities and concerns of the Organization. Fully indexed, the Yearbook includes the texts of all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions.



Institutional arrangements

The Economic and Social Council continued during 1990 to review its structure and functioning. In July, the Council invited its President to hold informal consultations on the review of measures agreed upon for the revitalization of the Council. It also agreed to hold a special high-level meeting on major policy themes in 1991. The General Assembly, in December, decided to reconvene in a resumed session in April 1991 for in-depth consideration and negotiation of proposals for the restructuring of the United Nations in the economic and social fields. It also adopted new proposals for the revitalization of its Third (Social, Humanitarian and Cultural) Committee.
