    • Political and security questions

      Among the collateral measures of disarmament and arms control discussed in 1971, two questions received particular attention both in the Conference of the Committee on Disarmament and in the General Assembly. These questions were the banning of underground nuclear weapon tests and the prohibition and destruction of chemical and bacteriological (biological) weapons. There was also considerable discussion during the year of the methods and procedures to be followed in future disarmament negotiations, including a proposal for a world disarmament conference.

    • Economic and social questions

      On 1 January 1971, the Second United Nations Development Decade began. The Decade had been proclaimed by the General Assembly on 24 October 1970, at which time an International Development Strategy for the Decade was adopted.

    • Questions relating to trust and non-self-governing territories and the declaration on granting independence

      Under the International Trusteeship System established by the Charter of the United Nations, Member States administering Trust Territories are accountable to the United Nations for the discharge of their responsibilities and obligations in the administration of the Territories.

    • Legal questions

      In June 1971, the International Court of Justice delivered an advisory opinion on the following question: “What are the legal consequences for States of the continued presence of South Africa in Namibia, notwithstanding Security Council resolution 276(1970)?”

    • Administrative and budgetary questions

      In 1971, the General Assembly examined the composition of the Secretariat on the basis of the annual report of the Secretary-General on the subject.
