Released in annual editions of 6 volumes, the Annual Review of United Nations Affairs is the only thorough annual survey of major developments at the United Nations.

The 2016/2017 edition includes the full text of all General Assembly, Security Council, and ECOSOC resolutions from the 71st United Nations session (Sept. 2016 to Sept. 2017), along with other key UN documents, including the annual report of the Secretary-General on the work of the Organization and the annual reports of the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the ICJ and international criminal tribunals, and various funds and programs of the United Nations system.

This edition also includes a Preface by the series editors and five introductory commentaries written by expert contributors. These introductions offer invaluable guidance on the activities of various United Nations bodies, including the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the International Court of Justice and Tribunals, and the Secretariat.

The Annual Review of United Nations Affairs series

Since the publication of its first edition in 1950, the Annual Review of United Nations Affairs has stood as the authoritative resource for scholars, students, and practitioners researching the latest developments at the United Nations. From introductory articles on particular topics, prepared by experts on the relevant United Nations bodies, to the full-text presentation of reports and resolutions,
ARUNA provides a comprehensive tour of each year's UN actions and debates. The expert selection of documents by Joachim Muller and Karl Sauvant and the topic-based organization of those documents make any researcher's task much easier than the vast searching and sorting required by the UN's website, and the series' topic-based organization of the materials is also useful to researchers.
Beginning with the 2010/2011 edition, detailed commentaries on the various UN bodies by experts on the relevant topics were added to each annual edition, and the analysis provided in these commentaries has helped to make ARUNA a more complete resource for anyone engaged in research on the activities of the United Nations.

ARUNA presents comprehensive documentation of the work of the UN on an annual basis, starting in September of each year with the beginning of the regular sessions of the General Assembly. Coverage of and commentary on the UN's key organs are provided, including the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the International Court of Justice, and the UN Secretariat. In addition, selected reports of
intergovernmental bodies and expert groups are included. ARUNA is an important reference source for policy-makers and academic researchers alike.
