Are you ready for the next UNGA session?

Friday 14 September 2018

Topics: Resources

As the 73rd session of the General Assembly is approaching, you may be wondering a few things. 

Who will be the first speaker in the general debate of the UN General Assembly and why?  How can I find statements made by my country at the General Debate? How is the agenda of the General Assembly decided? Where can I find voting information for a specific resolution?

The Dag Hammarskjöld Library provides the answers with a variety of multilingual resources.


Browse 700 frequently asked questions and find answers about all things UN, including over 300 FAQs related to the work of the General Assembly in English, French and Spanish. Links to General Debate statements are also available in Ask DAG for every country, with records dating back to the country’s first statement to the General Assembly.

Research Guides

In addition to an indispensable guide on the General Assembly and its documentation, we recommend you look at our UN Documentation: Overview to get started, both available in all six official languages. 

As the Sustainable Development Goals will be a major focus of the work of the General Assembly, our new guide to key events and documents on development at the UN will also be essential.


Trying to find a resolution from a current or past session?  Save time and use the Library’s Table of Resolutions dating back to 1946.  The tables by session provide useful information related to every General Assembly resolution including voting data, meeting records and press releases.

If you can’t find what you are looking for, submit your question via our Ask DAG service and a librarian will respond to you.
