"The records in S-1955 document the work of the Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG) and the United Nations System regarding issues of armed and political conflict, human rights situations, and terrorism, as well as social matters. The records date from 2007 through 2010, and are arranged chronologically and by subject. The records consist primarily of correspondence; memoranda; official notes; invitations; statements of the Secretary-General; and reports. In 2011, the EOSG adopted a new records classification scheme that contains records for the remainder of the Secretary-General's term. Records similar to those in S-1955 are also found within S-1959: Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG) - Central Files (2011-2016). The records focus on trouble areas in the following regions, countries, and territories: African region; Central America; Republic of Cyprus; Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia; Eritrea; Republic of Iraq; Kashmir; State of Kuwait; Korean Peninsula; the Middle East; and Western Sahara. A majority of records address peace talks, negotiation of peace agreements, and confidence-building measures (CBMs), including talks between the Government of Uganda and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA); Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders; Syria and Israel; and Iraq and Kuwait. In addition, some records pertain to border, territorial, and diplomatic disputes, such as those between Equatorial Guinea and Gabon; Eritrea and Djibouti; Republic of Guatemala and Belize; Republic of Colombia-Republic of Ecuador-Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela; Lebanese Republic and Syrian Republic; State of Palestine and State of Israel; Gaza Strip and southern Israel; and the Government of Morocco and Frente Polisario, regarding Western Sahara. The records also document security and humanitarian situations in eastern Chad and the northeastern Central African Republic, including movements of refugees and of internally displaced persons and detail progress in creating security conditions conducive to their voluntary repatriation; the transfer of Kuwaiti prisoners of war (POW), and the return of property from Iraq. Records documenting human rights situations focus on countries such as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK); Republic of Cyprus; and Republic of Cuba. Documentation associated with the Middle East contain the records of United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF); United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL); United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO); United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC); and United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC). In addition, there are records pertaining to the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE); United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP); and United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO). Some records in this series document terrorism and contain summaries of meetings of the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1373 (2001) concerning Counter-Terrorism and of the earlier Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1267 (1999) concerning Al-Qaida and the Taliban and associated individuals and entities; as well as the efforts of the Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF). In addition, there are condolence letters to the Secretary-General regarding the Algiers bombing, 11 December 2007. A small portion of records detail the investigation and provide updates related to the bombing. S-1955 contains records on social matters including the advancement of women and gender equality; climate change; Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); sustainable development; ageing; disabled persons; and youth. These records concern the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities; United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC); Division for the Advancement of Women (DAW); United Nations International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (UN-INSTRAW); conferences, forums, and summits regarding youth; Commission on Sustainable Development; United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD); Secretary-General's Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation; and the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD).
