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.



Protection of human rights

In 2006, the United Nations remained actively engaged in protecting human rights, mostly through the activities of its main organs—the General Assembly, the Security Council and the Economic and Social Council—and the newly established Human Rights Council, which assumed the functions of the Commission on Human Rights in the Organization’s efforts to overhaul and reform its 60-year old human rights machinery.
