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.



International Court of Justice

In 2012, the International Court of Justice (icj) delivered four Judgments and one Advisory Opinion, made two Orders and had 14 contentious cases pending before it. In a November address to the General Assembly, the icj President, Judge Peter Tomka, who began his three-year term as President on 6 February, noted that as the Court had been able to clear its backlog of cases, States that were contemplating submitting their cases could be confident that, as soon as they finished their written exchanges, the Court would be able to proceed without delay to oral hearings.
