This is the sixtieth volume of the most comprehensive and authoritative reference work on the activities of the Organization, covering 2006. This fully indexed Yearbook, reproduces in their entirety the texts of, and votes on, all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions. Its 33 chapters deeply cover developments in the main political and security questions; human rights; economic and social questions; legal questions; and institutional, administrative and budgetary questions.




In 2006, the United Nations reinforced efforts to mobilize the international community for concerted and more intensive action towards overcoming current disarmament and non-proliferation challenges, including persisting differences among Member States, which limited progress in multilateral disarmament fora. To that end, the General Assembly declared the 2010s as the Fourth Disarmament Decade, following three previous decades that had covered the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, all aimed at advancing disarmament norms and measures. In related action, the Assembly continued to promote the idea of convening a fourth special session devoted to disarmament, the aim of which would be to define the future course of action on disarmament and associated international security questions, and enhance the gains made at the first, second and third special sessions held in 1978, 1982 and 1988, respectively.
