Chapter Summary

The Council purposely uses the term &t;authorize&t;, going beyond what is explicitly provided by the Charter, when it intends to &t;legalize&t; an otherwise illegal behavior and give a legalizing effect to one of its acts. Decisions, as opposed to recommendations, authorizations and delegations, have fully binding force for the States to which they are addressed. Operational resolutions must be considered as a special category since they are different from both decisions binding on the Member States and recommendations. These are the resolutions providing for a United Nation (UN) action. Declarations perform a very important role in the development of international law and of its adjustment to the needs for solidarity and for interdependence that are more and more being felt in the world today.

Keywords: decisions; declarations; operational resolutions; United Nation (UN) action
