Aperçu des travaux du
Conseil de sécurité en 2008
Le Conseil de sécurité a connu en 2008 une activité toujours aussi soutenue, largement dominée, une nouvelle fois, par les questions africaines et le Moyen-Orient.
Although seized of new crises in Kenya, Georgia and the Horn of Africa, the bulk of the Security Council's work in 2008 involved pushing forward numerous initiatives it had authorized in the previous year concerning existing crises, including the deployment of innovative peacekeeping arrangements in the Sudan and the implementation of hopeful accords in the Middle East and various African conflict situations.

In its presidential statement of 28 March 2007 (S/PRST/2007/7), the Security Council requested that I provide a report, in consultation with the relevant regional organizations, in particular the African Union, on specific proposals on how the United Nations can better support further cooperation and coordination with regional organizations on Chapter VIII arrangements.
In presenting this report, I have considered the important issues that define the nature of the collaborative partnership in international peace and security between the United Nations and …
1. The present report is submitted in accordance with Security Council presidential statement S/PRST/2007/31, in which the Council requested the Secretary-General to report to it on options for the further implementation of resolution 1625 (2005) on conflict prevention, particularly in Africa.
2. A culture of prevention is taking hold at the United Nations; awareness of the importance of prevention has spread, and the commitment to building and mainstreaming its tools has taken root.
The Security Council in 2007 focused intensive efforts on resolving, monitoring and managing a daunting range of complex situations already on its agenda, in concert with the new Secretary-General, developing groundbreaking peacekeeping arrangements and other innovative strategies aimed at strengthening global security.
I am writing with reference to the letter from the President of the Security Council addressed to the Secretary-General dated 31 May 2006 (S/2006/354), in which the Security Council informed your predecessor about the establishment of an ad hoc committee on mandate review to conduct the review of Security Council mandates called for by the Heads of State and Government in the 2005 World Summit Outcome Document (A/60/1) and to continue consideration of the recommendations contained in the report of the Secretary-General entitled "Mandating and delivering: analysis and recommendations …
Major Concerns Addressed Include War in Lebanon, Arab-Israeli Conflict, Sudan, Nuclear Non-Proliferation, Iraq, Afghanistan, Terrorism
In the face of complex and interrelated threats that spanned the globe and crisscrossed national and regional borders, the United Nations Security Council confronted an ambitious agenda in 2006 by brokering cessations of hostilities, easing difficult transitions and blunting relapses into conflict.
Aperçu des travaux du Conseil de sécurité en 2006
Tandis que sa représentativité est plus que jamais questionnée par l’Assemblée générale, pour qu’il reflète enfin les évolutions géopolitiques survenues depuis la fin de la guerre froide, le Conseil de sécurité aura, en 2006, été mobilisé par une série de crises d’une extrême gravité qui ont mis à l’épreuve sa capacité à maintenir la paix et la sécurité internationales.

Jointly with General Assembly, Council Establishes Peacebuilding Commission to Advise on Post-Conflict Issues
The volume and scope of the Security Council’s activities increased in 2005 as the scale of peacekeeping operations reached a historic high, but in a late-year action to ease that burden, the Council, acting concurrently with the General Assembly, operationalized a major decision of the World Summit and established a Peacebuilding Commission to advise it on post-conflict situations.
In a year dominated by the war in Iraq, the Security Council also addressed a broad range of other threats to peace and security around the globe, including in the Middle East, Afghanistan, Liberia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Côte d’Ivoire and others.
The Council convened 181 formal meetings, including 48 on situations in Africa, adopted 67 resolutions and issued 30 presidential statements. The veto was used twice, both times by the United States on draft resolutions regarding the situation in the Middle East.
