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.



Legal aspects of international political relations

In 2005, the International Law Commission (ILC) continued to examine topics suitable for the progressive development of codification of international law. It considered aspects of State liability, the responsibility of States to cooperate in cases of mutual interest, and the scope of such questions as diplomatic protection and unilateral State actions, and reconstituted a study group to examine the increasing fragmentation of international law. Special Rapporteurs presented reports on the examination of treaties and international agreements. ILC also considered two new agenda items, the expulsion of aliens and the effects of armed conflicts on treaties.
