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.



International peace and security

The United Nations continued to strengthen its efforts to promote and maintain international peace and security. The Peacebuilding Commission, established in 2005 to improve the management of UN peace operations worldwide, was inaugurated in June 2006 and convened country-specific meetings on the situations in Sierra Leone and Burundi in October and December. The Secretary-General took steps to establish the Peacebuilding Support Office to assist and support the Commission, as well as the Peacebuilding Fund to support peacebuilding activities that directly contributed to the stabilization of countries emerging from conflict.
