With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, this publication is the most authoritative reference work available on the activities and concerns of the Organization. Fully indexed, the Yearbook includes the texts of all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions. This latest volume, the sixty-first, highlights the attention given by the United Nations in 2007 to conflicts in Afghanistan, Central Africa and in the Darfur region, as well as instability in the Middle East, along with the challenges posed by poverty, gender inequality, uneven development, climate change and terrorism.



International peace and security

In 2007, the United Nations continued to promote international peace and security and strengthened its capacity to maintain its peace operations worldwide. The Security Council debated its role in reforming the security sector in countries emerging from conflict, as well as the connections between energy, security and climate, and natural resources and conflict. The Peacebuilding Commission continued to focus its attention on Burundi and Sierra Leone through its country-specific configurations, and adopted peacebuilding frameworks to guide its engagement in each of those countries. The Commission’s Organizational Committee placed a third country—Guinea-Bissau—on the Commission’s agenda and established a country-specific configuration on that country.
