Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization Yearbook, Volume 1 (1995)
Published for the first time, the UNPO Yearbook provides extensive information about the nations, peoples and minorities who are members of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO). The UNPO was founded in 1991 to provide a platform for those peoples and minorities who could not otherwise address the international community in its main assemblies such as the United Nations. The mission of UNPO is to assist these peoples to advance their interests effectively through non-violent means, including diplomacy, use of the United Nations and other international procedures for the protection of human rights, developing public opinion and other action-oriented strategies, and exploring legal options to defend their rights.
The Yearbook gives a detailed overview of the 1995 activities of UNPO, a review of the position of UNPO members and supporting members, a selection of key documents and the 1995 mission reports. The UNPO Yearbook is unique as it is the only publication which gives access to the material of the UNPO, which currently comprises forty-eight members representing over a hundred million people. It will be published annually to provide a permanent record of all the changes and developments relating to UNPO and to the activities of its members.
