GA resolutions[edit]

GA resolutions are definitely nonbinding. Perhaps your article could include a discussion of the binding triad, though. Thc420 07:19, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Copyright status of United Nations resolutions[edit]

Could anyone please clarify the copyright status of United Nations resolutions for use in Wikipedia or Wikisource? I hope to know it better before adding more UN resolution documents. Thanks.--Jusjih 06:04, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Don't worry about it, they're just like any other treaty, law, judicial decision or public document. (Nobody else does. Various ones are all over the net.) Such things are public domain and have no copyright. Add away. I was thinking of doing so myself. There's a lot of important ones which aren't there, nor are well treated anywhere on the web. Any particular format or method you are using? How about the votes?--John Z 20:42, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I added a new article for UN General Assembly Resolution 505 on 8 June 2005 (also in Chinese) and there has since no change to it. I would like to add UN resolutions to Wikisource, but I wonder if it is going to break up into subdomains of different language versions.--Jusjih 01:58, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I have a very bad news. s:en:Wikisource:Possible_copyright_violations#UN_Security_Council_Resolution_1154 now has a discussion on copyright status of United Nations resolutions after s:en:UN Security Council Resolution 1154 has been tagged copyvio.--Jusjih 10:21, 16 November 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Correction, a major discovery at s:Wikisource:Possible_copyright_violations#Draft_United_Nations_Guiding_principles_on_Human_Rights_and_Extreme_Poverty has found that paragraph 2 of ST/AI/189/Add.9/Rev.2 leaves United Nations resolutions in the public domain, so we may add them to Wikisource, but Wikipedia should be used to write about them instead of just copying their contents. Very sorry about the major turmoil at English Wikisource for months.--Jusjih 17:07, 7 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]



We're starting a small wiki dedicated to Foreign Policy and UN Research. We're pretty new at the whole wiki thing, but you seem to have made some solid foreign policy posts. We'd love your expertise if you've got the time to possibly answer some questions and contribute. Interested? Email and check out (very early in development ;)) Fj winit

Please see Wikipedia:Spam. Thank you. Skinnyweed 22:20, 28 May 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

effective term[edit]

is there any expiration date for a resolution? As I know the UN has passed many resolution for anti-blasphemy or to "against religious defamation", if there is no expiration date, then why does OIC want to raise it every year? Jackzhp (talk) 06:00, 9 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Split discussion in progress[edit]

There is a split discussion in progress on Talk:List of United Nations resolutions concerning Israel and Palestine, which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. GreyShark (dibra) 19:51, 19 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
