Revitalization of the work of the General Assembly (Provisional Agenda item 122)
Summary of work
Background (source: A/68/100/Add.1)
This item, which was included in the agenda of the forty-sixth session of the General Assembly, in 1991, had originally been proposed for inclusion in the draft agenda of that session by the President of the Assembly at its forty-fifth session (see decision 45/461).
At its fifty-fourth session, the General Assembly decided to defer consideration of the item and to include it in the draft agenda of its subsequent session (decision 54/491).
The General Assembly continued its consideration of the item from its fifty-fifth to sixty-sixth sessions (resolutions 55/285, 56/509, 57/301, 58/126, annex, 61/292, 62/276, 63/309, 64/301, 65/315 and 66/294).
At its resumed fifty-eighth session, in July 2004, the General Assembly adopted a number of measures, inter alia, to reorganize the agenda of the Assembly; and decided to review the provisions of the reorganized agenda at its sixty-first session with a view to making further improvements (resolution 58/316).
At its sixty-seventh session, the General Assembly adopted interalia, the provisional programme of work of the Sixth Committee (decision 67/523) for the sixty-eighth session.
