United Nations, international law, General Assembly, Vukas Report, Asia


On 15th November 1990 the Sixth Committee of the General Assembly completed its deliberations on the Report of the Working Group on the United Nations Decade of International Law (the "Vukas Report"). The Vukas Report sets out the proposed programme of activities of the Decade during the period 1990-92, and represents another important step towards the implementation of resolution 44/23 of 17th November 19891 and the fulfilment of the aspirations of strengthening the international legal order connected with that resolution. On the 19th November 1990 the Vukas Report was formally adopted by the Sixth Committee without a vote. The Decade has at last a tangible programme of activities.
