YUN 2010 now on website!

The published version of the 2010 Yearbook of the United Nations is now available in full for reading and research on the Yearbook website! The 2010 Yearbook was previously available only in its Pre-press form. The posting of this latest volume updates the collection of Yearbooks already available through the site, dating back to the 1946-47 edition. 

This sixty-fourth volume of the Yearbook, published in December 2014, recounts how the Organization took up challenges and opportunities worldwide in maintaining international peace and security, fostering economic and social development, providing humanitarian assistance, promoting and protecting human rights, and advancing international law in 2010. It highlights the renewed commitment by world leaders to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015, the establishment of UN-Women and the Organization’s massive humanitarian response to the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January, an event that claimed the lives of more than 220,000 people, including 102 United Nations personnel.

As with the rest of the collection, the 2010 Yearbook includes all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions, placing them in a narrative context of United Nations consideration, deliberation and action. When accessed through the website, the Yearbook is fully searchable through a variety of methods, and results are sortable by date or relevancy. The ability to download an entire Yearbook chapter has recently been added to the previously available page download function.

The Yearbook team is currently working on the 2011 Yearbook and subsequent volumes. Please consult the Pre-press section of the website for an advance look at chapters and chapter outlines for forthcoming Yearbooks.
