Hide / Show Abstract

In two special sessions of the General Assembly, the first held in 1978 (known as the tenth special session, or the first devoted to disarmament) and the second held in 1982 (the twelfth special session, or the second devoted to disarmament), the international community has made special efforts to reach agreement on a strategy for the future course of disarmament. The two special sessions provided an opportunity to discuss the full range of questions related to the arms race and the possibilities of limiting and reversing it. The Final Document of the Tenth Special Session, usually referred to in this volume as the 1978 Final Document, was adopted by consensus and is generally considered the guide for all disarmament efforts within and outside the United Nations. While the twelfth special session did not reach consensus on a final document, it did end with the unanimous reaffirmation of the validity of the 1978 Final Document.
