The Yearbook of the United Nations, comprehensive and reliable, is the primary reference work on the United Nations. This fifty-second volume of the Yearbook details the many activities of the Organization and its organs, programmes and bodies in 1998. It provides an overview of the major challenges the Organization has addressed in a variety of areas, including peacekeeping and peacemaking; disarmament; human rights; refugees and displaced persons; international crime and corruption; natural resources and energy; and System-wide Special Initiative on Africa. This 1,500 pages volume is fully indexed and reproduces all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions issued during the year. It will be a valuable resource for diplomats, government officials, scholars, journalists and others with a serious interest in international and United Nations affairs.



Other political and security questions

The United Nations continued in 1998 to consider a number of political and security issues relating to the prevention of the disintegration of States, support for new and restored democracies, and the promotion of self-determination of the remaining Non-Self-Governing Territories, as well as the peaceful uses of outer space. The work of the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation, the continued reform of UN information policies, the Secretary-General’s proposals on the future of the Trusteeship Council and the convening in 2000 of a special Millennium Assembly of the United Nations were also discussed.
