Description

For over 25 years, The Annual Review of United Nations Affairs (ARUNA) has been the print source for researchers needing a comprehensive document collection that highlights the work of the United Nations' six principal organs each year. Recognized as the only print and bound collection for these documents, ARUNA is an essential reference for academic researchers and policy-makers. Coverage spans important resolutions and decisions, focusing on the significant documents and collaborative work of the United Nations. Selected reports of intergovernmental bodies and expert groups are also included and documents are grouped together by subject matter for easy reference. Each year, a new guest author provides an introduction to the set, analyzing the major themes covered throughout that year. ARUNA provides an in-depth view to an organization that today has more the 63,000 employees located in nearly 175 countries and is responsible for implementing the decisions of the governing bodies. ARUNA 1995-Present is the most current set in this comprehensive series that chronicles the United Nations involvement in addressing a rapidly changing international community. This set includes the ushering in of a new millennium, one with unforeseen successes and challenges. The content captures the United Nations' changing role in a post 9/11 society as it re-evaluated its priorities to reflect and reaffirm its mission of peace. Since its official inception in 1945, people have relied on the United Nations to safeguard what is fundamental for them, sustainable development to peace and security. The ARUNA 1995-Present set compiles the important resolutions and documents of the most important multilateral organization ever established. An authoritative reference, this set documents the United Nations as it responds to current issues among and between Nation-States.
