Chapter Summary

The German Bundestag decided only relatively recently to establish a separate committee to deal with the policies of the United Nations (UN). The United Nations is no longer a topic neglected by the German Bundestag. United Nations Subcommittees work has achieved a number of visible results, e.g. increasing the German contribution to the Centre for Human Rights preventing Germany from leaving UNIDO, helping bring about the release of prisoners in Western Sahara and reducing the size of cuts in voluntary contributions to UN institutions. One of the most important areas of the Subcommittee's work is reform of the United Nations, which is an ongoing political task. The parties represented in the Bundestag drew up motions of their own to present their positions and deepen the discussion on renewal of the United Nations.
