For over 25 years, The Annual Review of United Nations Affairs (ARUNA) has been the print source for researchers needing a comprehensive document collection that highlights the work of the United Nations' six principal organs each year. Recognized as the only print and bound collection for these documents, ARUNA is an essential reference for academic researchers and policy-makers. Coverage spans important resolutions and decisions, focusing on the significant documents and collaborative work of the United Nations. Selected reports of intergovernmental bodies and expert groups are also included and documents are grouped together by subject matter for easy reference. Each year, a new guest author provides an introduction to the set, analyzing the major themes covered throughout that year. ARUNA provides an in-depth view to an organization that today has more the 63,000 employees located in nearly 175 countries and is responsible for implementing the decisions of the governing bodies. This particular edition (2006-07): The past year has been one of the most tumultuous and challenging in the U.N.'s history and, indeed, in the modern history of the entire globe. This year's edition of ARUNA presents the story of that tumult as well as the story of the U.N.'s efforts to resolve both global conflicts and internal controversy. Specifically, this year's set of volumes includes documents related to the U.N.-based World Food Programme, whose management provoked an international scandal last year. However, most the 2006-07 edition of ARUNA focuses on the more critical issues affecting millions of lives around the world in the past year: the Darfur genocide, climate change, the Palestinian refugee crisis, West Africa's political and social instability. By providing the full text of both the resolutions addressing these topics and the U.N. reports concerning them, ARUNA 06/07 delivers a unique resource for students, scholars, and practitioners. The series' topic-based organization of the materials and subject index lend invaluable guidance to all researchers. This year, Dr. Edward Luck , the Director of the Center on International Organization of the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, is contributing an introductory essay that will illuminate this year's varied and troubling world events. This particular volume (Vol. 2): This volume consists solely of G.A. resolutions from the second half of the G.A.'s 61st session (January to September of 2007). This collection of recent resolutions focus primarily on the following topics: BLHuman Rights abuses by the governments of Myanmar, Israel, and Iran. BLThe use of torture by officers and agents of a government. BLAfrica: development, infectious diseases, U.N. intervention in regional conflicts, the U.N.'s Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Central Africa, U.N. funding of the Sierra Leone and Rwanda tribunals, and cooperation between the U.N. and the African Union. BLCombatting poverty worldwide. BLCombatting the defamation of Islam by media sources. BLCombatting denials of the Holocaust. BLThe imperative that governments observe human rights principles while conducting the global war against terrorism. BLThe imperative that U.N. peacekeepers refrain from sexual exploitation. BLClimate change and natural disasters. BLGlobalization, development in the poorest countries, fair trade practices, and the fight aganst poverty generally.
