La Charte des Nations Unies : commentaire, article par article by Nazioni Unite( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in French and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Signée le 26 juin 1945, entrée en vigueur le 24 octobre suivant, la Charte des Nations Unies a 60 ans. Si les résultats sont, à l'évidence, en deçà des espérances, l'action des États, la firme propre des institutions, la souplesse du texte, ont permis aux Nations Unies de s'adapter aux exigences changeantes des relations internationales en dépit des mutations considérables qui ont marqué, ces 60 dernières années: guerre froide, décolonisation, recherche d'un développement durable, menaces nucléaire et du terrorisme ... Cette remarquable faculté d'adaptation, le miracle permanent que constitue l'existence même de l'Organisation, l'influence qu'elle continue d'exercer en dépit des tentations de l'unilatéralisme, justifient une étude d'ensemble de la Charte, dans une perspective juridique, à la lumière de la pratique. Sous la direction de Jean-Pierre Cot et Alain Pellet, 129 juristes - parmi lesquels 3 anciens Présidents, le Vice-Président et 2 juges à la Cour internationale de Justice, plusieurs ministres ou anciens ministres, de nombreux fonctionnaires internationaux ou diplomates familiers des Nations Unies, des membres de la Commission du Droit international et une pléiade d'universitaires et de chercheurs - venant de 24 pays, mais tous francophones et se réclamant de la tradition juridique latine, ont uni leurs efforts pour faire le point des connaissances actuelles sur les Nations Unies. Comme les deux éditions précédentes, celle-ci se présente sous la forme d'un commentaire article par article, soigneusement mis à jour; mais elle a été enrichie de contributions abordant des sujets transversaux qui ne trouvent pas place dans le commentaire d'une disposition déterminée."--Page 4 of cover

Manual on statistics of international trade in services by United Nations( )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main reason for this publication is to address the growing demand from governments, business, and analysts, for more relevant, detailed, and internationally comparable statistics on trade. With a special emphasis given to the statistical information needs of international trade negotiations and agreements. It provides a coherent conceptual framework within which countries can structure the statistics they collect and disseminate on international services trade, and recommends some means of making the data more efficient. The manual describes the four modes through which international services are traded and takes a broader and more detailed view of international trade in services as opposed to the more conventional balance of payments analysis performed by other manuals. Approaches to best implement the recommendations that are proposed are also provided in the manual.--Publisher's description
Updates and Amendments to the System of national accounts 1993 by Groupe de travail intersecrétariats sur la comptabilité nationale( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This joint publication of the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat) and the World Bank complements the recommendations of the System of National Accounts, 1993 (1993 SNA), and reflects changes and improvements that have been introduced to the system of national accounts since its last revision in 1993. Along with the 1993 SNA, Updates and Amendments supports the implementation of international standards of national accounting and provides the methodological basis for improving the international comparability of national accounts data. The publication contains the text of the 1993 SNA that has been updated as a result of the adoption of new international standards for the statistical measurement of financial derivatives. It also includes four functional classifications that were fully elaborated and updated after the 1993 SNA was published. It also provides for the first time a glossary of terms and definitions
