image of Yearbook of the United Nations 2005

This unique publication, the Sixtieth Anniversary Edition, chronicles all the major activities of the United Nations system, including those of intergovernmental and expert bodies, major reports, Secretariat activities and, in selected cases, the views of the Member States. It presents results of the 2005 World Summit Conference, which gathered leaders from 170 countries to assess UN achievements and progress made towards implementation of the 2000 Millennium Declaration, and adopted measures contained in a Summit Outcome Document for the Organization’s future course. This 1,716 pages volume is fully indexed and reproduces all major resolutions and decisions of the General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council issued during the year together with the voting records. The publication is an indispensable and authoritative reference tool for the research community, diplomats, government officials and the public at large.




During 2005, the United Nations continued to advance the cause of lasting peace, human rights, sustainable development and the rule of law in the Americas.With the ending of the mandate of the United Nations Verification Mission in Guatemala at the end of 2004, the Guatemalan peace process had matured into a new phase in which national actors had assumed fuller responsibility for monitoring and promoting the accords. A joint agreement in May between the Government of Guatemala and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights resulted in the establishment of an office for monitoring and reporting on human rights in that country.
