Encyclopedia > List of emergency special sessions of the United Nations General Assembly

An emergency special session is an unscheduled meeting of the United Nations General Assembly to make urgent decisions over a particular issue. They are typically rare — a fact reflected in there being only 10 in the history of the United Nations. Most emergency special sessions span a single session — the tenth, however, is the only emergency special session to be resumed more than once (the seventh emergency special session of the United Nations General Assembly was resumed once).


The UN's Uniting for Peace resolution (Resolution 377 [1] (http://daccess-ods.un.org/access.nsf/Get?OpenAgent&DS=A/RES/377(V)&Lang=E&Area=RESOLUTION)) allows a majority vote of the Security Council, a majority vote of UN member states, or a simple request from any single member to convene an emergency special session within 24 hours.
