Now in its second year of annual publication, the UNPO Yearbook contains important information about the current state of affairs of the 50 Members of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO). UNPO was created in 1991, by the members themselves, in order to provide a platform for those nations, minorities and peoples who are not represented in established international forums such as the United Nations. The mission of UNPO is to assist these people to advance their interests effectively through non-violent means, including diplomacy, through the use of the United Nations and other international procedures for the protection of human rights, through development of public opinion and through the exploration of legal options to defend their rights. The number of UNPO Members has grown rapidly since its founding and today the 50 Members represent over 100 million people. The UNPO Yearbook provides a comprehensive overview of the 1996 activities of UNPO, a review of the history and current positions of UNPO Members, a selection of key UNPO documents and annual information, as well as 1996 Conference and Mission Reports. An essential reference work for anyone involved in current international affairs, the UNPO Yearbook is the only publication which gives access to the material of the UNPO and its Members. The UNPO Yearbook for 1996 represents a considerable body of information providing a record of the changes and developments relating to UNPO and to the activities of its Members during the past year.
