UN General Assembly

The General Assembly is the main deliberative organ of the United Nations. It is composed of representatives of all Member States, each of which has one vote. Decisions on important questions, such as those on peace and security, admission of new Members and budgetary matters, require a two-thirds majority. Decisions on other questions are reached by a simple majority. These decisions may be adopted without a vote, or with a vote, which may be recorded, non-recorded or by roll-call. While the decisions of the General Assembly have no legally binding force for Governments, they carry the weight of world opinion on major international issues, as well as the moral authority of the world community. The work of the United Nations derives largely from the decisions of the General Assembly, i.e. the will of the majority of the Members, as expressed in resolutions adopted by the General Assembly. This database contains General Assembly reports and resolutions of relevance to the work of UNHCR.  Website: www.un.org/ga
