PROBABLE EXEMPTIONS TO UNITED NATIONS EMPLOYEE HIRING FREEZE

Pub. L. 100-204, title VII, Sec. 701, Dec. 22, 1987, 101 Stat.

1383, as amended by Pub. L. 102-138, title I, Sec. 163, Oct. 28,

1991, 105 Stat. 676, provided that:

"(a) Findings. - The Congress makes the following findings:

"(1) In April 1986, the Secretary-General of the United Nations

adopted a freeze on the hiring of personnel within the United

Nations Secretariat.

"(2) The conditions of the freeze were such that, as the terms

of office for the personnel expired, replacements would not be

recruited or hired to fill the vacant positions, with minor

exceptions.

"(3) The freeze was designed to reduce United Nations personnel

by 15 percent over three years, as recommended by the Group of

High-Level Intergovernmental Experts to Review the Efficiency of

the Administrative and Financial Functioning of the United

Nations (commonly referred to as the 'Group of 18 Experts').

"(4) On May 5, 1987, the Secretary-General reported to the

Department of State that he was considering granting 156

exceptions to the hiring freeze.

"(5) Of these 156 probable exceptions, 104 would be Soviet and

Soviet-bloc nationals currently employed in the United Nations

Secretariat - of 298 Soviet and Soviet-bloc nationals currently

employed in the United Nations Secretariat - who would be

replaced over the next 18 months.

"(6) According to a report from the Select Committee on

Intelligence of the Senate on 'Soviet Presence in the United

Nations Secretariat' (Senate Print 99-52, May 1985),

approximately one-fourth of the Soviets in the United Nations

Secretariat are intelligence officers, many more are co-opted by

the Soviet intelligence agencies, and all Soviets in the United

Nations Secretariat must respond to KGB requests for assistance.

"(7) Other United States intelligence authorities estimate that

as many as one-half of the Soviet and Soviet-bloc nationals in

the United Nations Secretariat are officers of the KGB or the

GRU.

"(8) If the Secretary-General's probable exemptions are

adopted, the Soviet Union will be allowed to replace retiring

Soviet and Soviet-bloc personnel with new, highly skilled and

well-trained intelligence officers of the KGB or the GRU.

"(9) The Secretary-General's proposed exceptions would thus

provide the Soviet Union with the capability to rebuild its

intelligence apparatus within the United States, which was

devastated in recent years when the United States ordered severe

reductions in the size of the Soviet mission to the United

Nations, the Soviet Embassy in Washington, District of Columbia,

and the Soviet Consulate in San Francisco, California.

"(10) Article 100 of the United Nations Charter calls for the

establishment of an international civil service whose members are

neutral and loyal only to the United Nations.

"(11) Section 3 of Article 101 of the United Nations Charter

calls for the appointment of individuals who are professionally

qualified for the positions they are to fill and maintains that

due regard shall be paid to the importance of recruiting the

staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible.

"(12) As of September 1985, 442 of 446 Soviet nationals

employed throughout the United Nations system are 'seconded',

that is, serve on short, fixed-term contracts.

"(13) Through the abuse of short, fixed-term contracts, the

Soviet Union has maintained undue influence and control over

major offices of the United Nations Secretariat, thereby

effectively using the United Nations Secretariat in the conduct

of its foreign relations, in clear violation of Articles 100 and

101 of the United Nations Charter.

"(14) The Secretary-General's proposed exceptions to the hiring

freeze (as described in paragraphs (1) through (5)) would

continue the gross violations of Articles 100 and 101 of the

United Nations Charter described in paragraph (13).

"(15) The Secretary-General's proposed exceptions to such

hiring freeze would be clearly inconsistent with the terms of the

United Nation's self-imposed reform program.

"(16) The United Nations has not yet achieved its reform goals

and there is no indication that the United Nations can afford to

make such large exceptions to such hiring freeze.

"(b) Sense of the Congress. - It is the sense of the Congress

that -

"(1) the President should take all such actions necessary to

ensure compliance with the hiring freeze rule, including

withholding all assessed United States contributions to the

United Nations, and denying United States entry visas to Soviet

and Soviet-bloc applicants coming to the United States to replace

Soviet and Soviet-bloc nationals currently serving in the United

Nations Secretariat;

"(2) the President, through the Department of State and the

United States mission to the United Nations, should express to

the Secretary-General of the United Nations the insistence of the

American people that the hiring freeze continue indefinitely, or

until the United Nations has complied with the Group of 18

recommendations and can thus afford to make exceptions to the

freeze;

"(3) the Secretary-General should revoke all exceptions to the

hiring freeze rule, excepting those member-nations which have 15

or fewer nationals serving in the United Nations Secretariat, or

those positions not subject to geographical representation, such

as those of the general service category;

"(4) the long-term, flagrant violations of Articles 100 and 101

of the United Nations Charter and the abuse of secondment by the

Soviet Union and Soviet-bloc member-nations are reprehensible;

"(5) the United Nations should adopt the recommendations of the

Group of 18 (as referred to in subsection (a)(3)) that no

member-nation be allowed to have more than 50 percent of its

nationals employed under fixed-term contracts;

"(6) the Soviet Union is hereby condemned for -

"(A) its refusal to adhere to the principles of the United

Nations Charter calling for an international civil service,

"(B) its abuse of secondment, and

"(C) its absolute disregard of the solemn purpose of the

United Nations to be an international civil service; and

"(7) if the Soviet Union and the Soviet-bloc intend to remain

member-nations of the United Nations, they should adhere to

Articles 100, 101, and all other principles of the United Nations

Charter to which every other member-nation must adhere.

"(c) Definition. - For the purposes of this section, the term

'Soviet-bloc' means the countries of Bulgaria, Cuba,

Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Nicaragua, North Korea,

Poland, and Romania."

HOUSING ALLOWANCES OF INTERNATIONAL CIVIL SERVANTS

Pub. L. 100-204, title VII, Sec. 703, Dec. 22, 1987, 101 Stat.

1389, provided that:

"(a) United States Policy. - It is the policy of the United

States to seek the implementation by the United Nations of the

recommendation by the International Civil Service Commission to

deduct from the pay (commonly referred to as a 'rental deduction')

of an international civil servant the amount of any housing

allowance or payment which is provided by any member state to that

international civil servant, in accordance with Article 100 of the

Charter of the United Nations and regulations thereunder.

"(b) United States Ambassador to the United Nations. - The United

States Ambassador to the United Nations shall seek to promote the

adoption of the recommendation described in subsection (a)."

ITS SPECIALIZED AGENCIES

Pub. L. 103-236, title IV, Sec. 409(a)-(d), Apr. 30, 1994, 108

405(b)(2), Sept. 30, 2002, 116 Stat. 1391, provided that:

authorized to be appropriated for 'Assessed Contributions to

International Organizations' by this Act [108 Stat. 382, 388], the

President may withhold 20 percent of the funds appropriated for the

of its specialized agencies for any calendar year if the United

Nations or any such agency has failed to implement or to continue

to implement consensus-based decisionmaking procedures on budgetary

matters which assure that sufficient attention is paid to the views

of the United States and other member states that are the major

financial contributors to such assessed budgets.

"(b) Notice to Congress. - The President shall notify the

Congress when a decision is made to withhold any share of the

United States assessed contribution to the United Nations or its

specialized agencies pursuant to subsection (a) and shall notify

the Congress when the decision is made to pay any previously

withheld assessed contribution. A notification under this

subsection shall include appropriate consultation between the

President (or the President's representative) and the Committee on

Foreign Affairs [now Committee on International Relations] of the

House of Representatives and the Committee on Foreign Relations of

the Senate.

"(c) Contributions for Prior Years. - Subject to the availability

of appropriations, payment of assessed contributions for prior

years may be made to the United Nations or any of its specialized

agencies notwithstanding subsection (a) if such payment would

further United States interests in that organization.

"[(d) Repealed. Pub. L. 107-228, div. A, title IV, Sec.

405(b)(2), Sept. 30, 2002, 116 Stat. 1391.]"

CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED NATIONS EDUCATIONAL, SCIENTIFIC, AND

CULTURAL ORGANIZATION

THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE STATES PARTIES TO THIS CONSTITUTION ON

BEHALF OF THEIR PEOPLES DECLARE

that since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of

men that the defences of peace must be constructed;

that ignorance of each other's ways and lives has been a common

cause, throughout the history of mankind, of that suspicion and

mistrust between the peoples of the world through which their

differences have all too often broken into war;

that the great and terrible war which has now ended was a war made

possible by the denial of the democratic principles of the dignity,

equality and mutual respect of men, and by the propagation, in

their place, through ignorance and prejudice, of the doctrine of

the inequality of men and races;

that the wide diffusion of culture, and the education of humanity

for justice and liberty and peace are indispensable to the dignity

of man and constitute a sacred duty which all the nations must

fulfill in a spirit of mutual assistance and concern;

that a peace based exclusively upon the political and economic

arrangements of governments would not be a peace which could secure

the unanimous, lasting and sincere support of the peoples of the

world, and that the peace must therefore be founded, if it is not

to fail, upon the intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind.

FOR THESE REASONS,

the States parties to this Constitution, believing in full and

equal opportunities for education for all, in the unrestricted

pursuit of objective truth, and in the free exchange of ideas and

knowledge, are agreed and determined to develop and to increase the

means of communication between their peoples and to employ these

means for the purposes of mutual understanding and a truer and more

perfect knowledge of each other's lives;

IN CONSEQUENCE WHEREOF

they do hereby create the United Nations Educational, Scientific

and Cultural Organisation for the purpose of advancing, through the

educational and scientific and cultural relations of the peoples of

the world, the objectives of international peace and of the common

welfare of mankind for which the United Nations Organisation was

established and which its Charter proclaims.

ARTICLE I.

PURPOSES AND FUNCTIONS

1. The purpose of the Organisation is to contribute to peace and

security by promoting collaboration among the nations through

education, science, and culture in order to further universal

respect for justice, for the rule of law and for the human rights

and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the

world, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion, by

the Charter of the United Nations.

2. To realise this purpose the Organisation will:

(a) collaborate in the work of advancing the mutual knowledge

and understanding of peoples, through all means of mass

communication and to that end recommend such international

agreements as may be necessary to promote the free flow of

ideas by word and image;

(b) give fresh impulse to popular education and to the spread

of culture;

by collaborating with Members, at their request, in the

development of educational activities; by instituting

collaboration among the nations to advance the ideal of

equality of educational opportunity without regard to race,

sex or any distinctions, economic or social;

by suggesting educational methods best suited to prepare the

children of the world for the responsibilities of freedom;

(c) maintain, increase and diffuse knowledge;

by assuring the conservation and protection of the world's

inheritance of books, works of art and monuments of history

and science, and recommending to the nations concerned the

necessary international conventions;

by encouraging cooperation among the nations in all branches

of intellectual activity, including the international exchange

of persons active in the fields of education, science and

culture and the exchange of publications, objects of artistic

and scientific interest and other materials of information;

by initiating methods of international cooperation calculated

to give the people of all countries access to the printed and

published materials produced by any of them.

3. With a view to preserving the independence, integrity and

fruitful diversity of the cultures and educational systems of the

States Members of this Organisation, the Organisation is prohibited

from intervening in matters which are essentially within their

domestic jurisdiction.

Nations Organisation, as soon as practicable, as one of the

specialised agencies referred to in Article 57 of the Charter of

the United Nations. This relationship shall be effected through an

agreement with the United Nations Organisation under Article 63 of

competent authorities of any other specialised inter-governmental

organisations or agencies whose purposes and functions lie within

the Director-General, subject to the approval of the Conference,

may enter into mutually acceptable arrangements for its purpose.

inter-governmental organisations for reciprocal representation at

meetings.

appropriate participation by representatives of such organisations

on advisory committees set up by the General Conference.

countries can benefit by the provision of support for

community-based self-help activities;

that Act, the Congress has sought to enable the poor to

participate in the process of development;

(4) the Inter-American Foundation, established by Congress in

the Foreign Assistance Act of 1969 [22 U.S.C. 290f], to support

the efforts of the people of Latin America and the Caribbean to

solve their development problems, has demonstrated a successful
