Introduction – UN Documentation: International Law

International law is a primary concern of the United Nations. The third preambular paragraph of the UN Charter states as a key goal of the organization “to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained”. The Statute of the International Court of Justice is an integral part of the Charter, and the ICJ is a principal organ of the UN.

International law is a complex and specialized field. This guide provides an introduction to the key documentation of the UN.

The UN Juridical Yearbook provides an overview of the legal activities of the organization during the year.

Some subject terms which might prove useful in conducting a search are:

The politics of identity

SHARON SMITH argues that identity politics can’t liberate the oppressed

FIGHTING AGAINST oppression is an urgent issue in U.S. society today. Racism, sexism, and homophobia have all reached appalling levels—that seem only to rise with each passing year. White students in Jena hang nooses, and Black students end up in prison.1 Squads of Minutemen vigilantes patrol the Mexican border with impunity, for the sole purpose of terrorizing migrant communities.2 College campuses across the U.S. commemorate “Islamo-fascism awareness week” as if it were just another legitimate student activity.3 Fred Phelps and his Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church congregation regularly picket outside funerals of gay soldiers killed in Iraq, proclaiming that they belong in hell.4

To be sure, the problem extends way beyond the extremist fringe. Media pundits barely comment on the outrages described above, while

Renowned Explorers: International Society on Steam

Reviews

“It’s genuinely great, like, it’s one of my favorite games this year so far. It’s got so much going for it, so much depth, so much character, so much replayability, great systems, unique concepts in combat, awesome presentation…”
TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit

“Here’s where I start to love Renowned Explorers. The encounters aren’t just a paper/rock/scissors system of aggressive, friendly, or devious. The more pertinent choice is whether you’re going to talk or fight. Either approach has distinct rules, with some characters suited to one or the other.”
100 – Quartertothree – Tom Chick

“…Renowned Explorers still stands as one of the best surprises of the year so far that wannabe adventurers of any age can enjoy. Encountering some thugs but instead of fighting, it just turns into one great big insult throwing contest where the loser runs away, foaming at the mouth. Brilliant.”
85 – Gamewatcher – John
