Repertory of Practice of United Nations Organs

The Repertory is a legal publication containing analytical studies of the decisions of the principal organs of the United Nations under each of the Articles of the Charter of the United Nations, prepared by the Secretariat units concerned in accordance with their operational responsibilities and under the guidance of the Inter-Departmental Committee on Charter Repertory. It consists of a comprehensive summary of the decisions of United Nations Organs, together with review of related material, organized by Charter Articles, and presented in such a way as to throw light on questions of application and interpretation of the Charter which have arisen in practice.

During the past few years, certain studies of the Repertory have been prepared in collaboration with some Academic Institutions.
