Yearbook of the United Nations 2003

This unique publication, the fifty-seventh volume of the Yearbook of the United Nations, chronicles all the major activities undertaken in the United Nations system in the year 2003. Some of the issues faced in that particularly challenging year include the rift in the Security Council over the use of force by a United States-led coalition against Iraq because of its alleged retention of banned weapons of mass destruction, the terrorist attack on the Organization’s headquarters in Baghdad, the establishment by the Secretary-General of the High-level Panel on Threats, Challenges and Change, and the Security Council’s adoption of a declaration on combating terrorism.

During 2003, United Nations efforts to advance the status of women and ensure their rights continued to be guided by the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, adopted by the Fourth (1995) World Conference on Women. The outcome of the General Assembly’s twenty-third (2000) special session, to appraise and assess implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (Beijing+5), prompted further action and initiatives for the advancement of women.
