This is the sixtieth volume of the most comprehensive and authoritative reference work on the activities of the Organization, covering 2006. This fully indexed Yearbook, reproduces in their entirety the texts of, and votes on, all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions. Its 33 chapters deeply cover developments in the main political and security questions; human rights; economic and social questions; legal questions; and institutional, administrative and budgetary questions.



Human rights violations

In 2006, human rights situations of concern, particularly regarding alleged violations and how best to assist and guide Governments and national institutions in combating them, were addressed by the General Assembly and the newly established Human Rights Council, as well as by special rapporteurs, the Secretary-General’s special representatives and independent experts appointed to examine those situations. A marked escalation of armed conflict in the Darfur region of the Sudan, relations between Israel and Lebanon, and the situation in the occupied Palestinian Territories prompted the Council to convene four special sessions to consider each case.
