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.



Legal aspects of international political relations

In 2006, the International Law Commission (ilc) continued to examine topics relating to the progressive development and codification of international law. It adopted the Guiding Principles applicable to unilateral declarations of States capable of creating legal obligations, which the General Assembly commended for dissemination. It also completed the second reading of draft articles on diplomatic protection, the first reading of draft articles on the law of transboundary aquifers and the second reading of draft principles on international liability in case of loss for transboundary harm arising out of hazardous activities. The Assembly, in December, took note of the draft principles and commended them to the attention of Governments.
