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.




During 2006, the United Nations maintained its strong commitment to promoting peace, stability and development in Africa through six UN political missions and offices and seven peacekeeping missions, supported by some 60,000 military personnel. The Organization faced tremendous challenges in helping the countries in conflict situations and those in transition to post-conflict peacebuilding in Central Africa and the Great Lakes region, West Africa and the Horn of Africa to return to peace, stability and prosperity. The Office of the Special Adviser on Africa and the United Nations Office for West Africa continued to bring a regional perspective to issues facing the continent, promote conflict prevention and raise awareness about subregional problems, in particular, youth unemployment and migration.
