United Nations Roll Call Data, 1946-1985 (ICPSR 5512)
Principal Investigator(s): Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research
This collection consists of roll calls voted upon in the United Nations. It includes votes of the General Assembly, five additional special sessions and selected committees. It is a composite of political debate and world opinion of the post-1945 international community. The collection provides for the analysis over time of world opinion on issues and concerns raised by members of the international community, while also allowing for the study of the dynamics through which alliances and factions are formed within and between nations of the world.
