(p.269) The UN Laissez Passer: Legal Reflections and Managerial Issues
From Bilateralism to Community Interest

Wolfgang Münch

Oxford University Press

As at 30 April 2010 there were 35,577 UN Laissez Passers (UNLPs) in circulation, issued to officials of organizations of the UN family and a few other organizations that had concluded relationship agreements with the United Nations (UN). According to UN Document CEB/2009/HLCM/HR30 dated 7 May 2009 the overall number of UN staff amounted to 70,792 persons as at 31 December 2008. The red colour of a UNLP indicates the high position of its holder among UN officials and his/her diplomatic status. This chapter focuses on a particularly eminent holder of a red UNLP. It aims to provide some key factual information on the issuance of UNLPs, to address some legal questions, and to highlight certain administrative issues related to UNLP management.
