United Nations Research

resources for researching the United Nations, the UN Security Council, General Assembly, UNData, and other topics of interest at St. Mary's


The United Nation has produced a large variety of documents since it was founded in 1945.  The main bodies (aka main organs, principal bodies) of the UN are the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the Trusteeship Council, the International Court of Justice, and the UN Secretariat. All of these sections are represented by the sources listed in this section.

However, this page of the guide will highlight the General Assembly, the Security Council, and the International Court of Justice as many of our students research topics related to these bodies.
