Questions relating to decolonization

During 1991, decolonization, based on the General Assembly’s 1960 Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples, continued to be an issue considered by the United Nations. The main body dealing with the subject was the Assembly’s Special Committee on the Situation with regard to the Implementation of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples (Committee on colonial countries). It examined the decolonization issue in general as well as individual Non-Self-Governing Territories. The Assembly, as recommended by the Committee, adopted resolutions dealing with, inter alia, decolonization in general (46/68 A), 10 small Territories (46/68 B), and the question of New Caledonia (46/69). It also adopted a plan of action for the International Decade for the Eradication of Colonialism (1990-2000) (46/181).
