Where can I find information about special sessions designated by the General Assembly?
Last Updated: Oct 28, 2016
The Charter of the United Nations (Chapter IV, article 20) provides for the General Assembly to meet in special sessions:
The General Assembly shall meet in regular annual sessions and in such special sessions as occasion may require. Special sessions shall be convoked by the Secretary-General at the request of the Security Council or of a majority of the Members of the United Nations.
The General Assembly special sessions table (linked below) provides:
- topics and dates
- convening of the session
- resolutions adopted during the session.
