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.



Middle East

Events in the Middle East in 2006 illustrated the magnitude of the instability in the region, the everwidening divide between Israel and its neighbours, and the bleak chances for achieving peace and security. The kidnapping of Israeli military personnel by Palestinian groups and Hizbullah in Lebanon in separate incidents, the continued firing of Qassam rockets towards Israel and the strong Israeli military response and ensuing humanitarian crisis were major setbacks to progress made the previous year in rebuilding trust and breaking the cycle of bloodshed.
