The principal reference work of the United Nations, providing a comprehensive, one-volume account of the Organization’s work along with information on the work of each specialized agency in the United Nations’ family.




Throughout 1992, the world moved further away from the environment of the cold war. The change in the international climate and agreements on major arms reductions by the former Soviet Union and the United States had placed disarmament in a significantly different perspective. Rather than being directed at achieving a balance of power between two military alliances, arms control and disarmament were seen more in the broader context of international peace and security. Moreover, arms limitation and disarmament efforts were being woven into the larger fabric of preventive diplomacy, conflict management and peace-building. In that context, the United Nations assumed a new role in international security, arms control and disarmament.
