Chapter Summary

In April of 2004, the Independent Inquiry Committee was charged by the Secretary-General and the Security Council with the task of thoroughly reviewing the management of the United Nations Oil-for-Food Programme. The Committee Report provides a broad and intensive review and analysis of the Programme. The Programme contributed to the maintenance and longevity of sanctions against Iraq, helping to ensure that Iraq would not obtain weapons of mass destruction. The Committee sought the cooperation of various governments and their law enforcement and regulatory bodies. This Report focuses particularly on the management and oversight of the Programme amidst the Programme's manipulation by Iraq. The Committee believes that its comments, criticisms, conclusions, and recommendations will be, and should be, seen against the wider canvas of United Nations reform.
