Contexte

While the Charter of the United Nations has often been regarded as the constitution of the Organization, resolutions adopted by its principal organs may be considered as its laws.  Hence the need for accuracy, respect of the correct terminology and search for the proper expression.  Over the years, United Nations resolutions have acquired a distinctive style.  Furthermore, the rules relating to the adoption of resolutions have been supplemented by a number of practices.  This workshop aims at providing thorough training on all these topics.

Objectifs d'apprentissage

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the structure and form of United Nations resolutions and decisions;
  • Apply this improved understanding and enhanced skills when drafting resolutions;  
  • Distinguish the rules and practices relating to the adoption of resolutions.

The workshop takes place over three days and contains the following modules:

  • Presentation on the structure and drafting of resolutions and decisions;
  • Drafting exercises;
  • Discussion on decision-making in the various United Nations organs and the steps leading to the adoption of resolutions.

Méthodologie

Mr. Gazarian, who was for 18 years Director of the Division of General Assembly Affairs, has an extensive knowledge of the procedures and practices related to United Nations resolutions and decisions.  In view of the limited duration of the workshop, active involvement of participants is required throughout the course.
