Chapter Summary

Since the 1980s, the United Nations and its specialized agencies have published a growing number of reports focusing on the global situation in a certain field of world politics, reports which are called &t;World Reports&t; by their authors. It should be noted that there is no clear line of demarcation between these World Reports and the annual reports of the UN organizations. The majority of the World Reports are limited to the detailed, empirically-based situation analysis of an issue area, but some are providing a more sophisticated approach. The &t;Human Development Reports&t; exemplify the functions of the World Reports: to inform about the current activities of UN organs in a large number of global issue areas, and, most importantly, to discuss concepts which can contribute to a better understanding.
