Yearbook of the United Nations, 2001. Part 5, Institutional, administrative and budgetary questions. Chapter 3, Administrative and staff matters
In 2001, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan (Ghana) was appointed for a second five year term, effective 1 January 2002. In October, the Secretary-General and the United Nations were awarded the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize (see p. 46), which, according to the Security Council President, reflected the high esteem shared by people throughout the world for the Secretary-General and honoured his exceptional achievements and those of the United Nations itself. The General Assembly, through the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC), reviewed the conditions of service of the staff of the UN common system. It adopted ICSC recommendations relating to the draft standards of conduct for the international civil service, the implications for the UN system of the introduction in 2002 of the euro as the national currency in the 12 euro-zone countries of the European Union and the base/floor salary scale. The Assembly also took action on the conditions of service for ad litem judges of the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), and continued to consider the proposed review and strengthening of ICSC as part of ongoing initiatives for UN reform. The Secretary-General reported on the comprehensive review of the conditions of service of judges of the International Court of Justice, ICTY and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, staff composition, gratis personnel, consultants and individual contractors, the status of women in the Secretariat, multilingualism, regulations governing the status, rights and duties of non-Secretariat officials and experts on mission, staff rules and regulations, staff safety and security, young professionals, mandatory age of separation, the United Nations System Staff College and adherence to regulations governing standards of accommodation for air travel of UN officials. The Joint Inspection Unit examined policies and practices regarding the recruitment and management of entry-level professionals in selected organizations of the common system. In continuing efforts to enhance the security and safety of UN staff and associated humanitarian personnel, the Assembly underlined the need to allocate adequate and predictable resources towards that end and requested the Secretary-General to ensure the human rights, privileges and immunities of UN and other personnel carrying out activities in fulfilment of the mandate of a UN operation. In other action, the Assembly adopted the statute of the United Nations System Staff College.
