image of Yearbook of the United Nations 2010
With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, the Yearbook of the United Nations stands as the most authoritative reference work 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, putting all of these in a narrative context of United Nations consideration, decision and action.




In the international community’s movement towards a world free of nuclear weapons, the highlight of 2010 was the 64-point action plan on nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and peaceful uses of nuclear energy and a call for a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the Middle East adopted in May by the eighth Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (npt). The Review Conference recognized that Treaty breaches undermined that momentum, and called on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to return to the Treaty. The Conference recognized the legitimate interests of non-nuclear-weapon States in constraining the development and qualitative improvement of nuclear weapons and ending the development of advanced new types of such weapons.
