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.




The year 2010 marked the fifteenth anniversary of the Fourth (1995) World Conference on Women, and the United Nations observed the milestone with a number of activities that served to gauge its efforts to advance the status of women worldwide. The Commission on the Status of Women carried out a global review of progress in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, adopted at the Fourth World Conference, and the outcomes of the General Assembly’s twenty-third (2000) special session (Beijing+5). The Commission held a series of high-level round table and panel discussions, the summaries of which were submitted to the Economic and Social Council as input for its 2010 annual ministerial review on implementing the internationally agreed goals and commitments in regard to gender equality and the empowerment of women. It also adopted a declaration on the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary and transmitted it, through the Council, to the Assembly, which endorsed it in December.
