Abstract

"The most important asset of the United Nations Secretariat is the staff". This statement using more or less the same or similar words has recur- rently been made by several Secretary-Generals of the United Nations, usually on the occasion of the general debate of the agenda item "hu- man resources management" in the Fifth Committee (Administrative and Budgetary) of the United Nations General Assembly. As far as it is known no Member State has contradicted such an appraisal and there should be no doubt that the thrust of the statement is correct. In recruiting staff the Secretary-General as the chief administrative officer of the organization* has to adhere to Article 101 para. 3 of the Charter which states: "The paramount consideration in the employment of the staff and in the determination of the conditions of service shall be the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and in- tegrity. Due regard shall be paid to the importance of recruiting the staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible." " The constitutions of specialized agencies of the United Nations sys- tem often contain provisions similar to Article 101 para. 3 of the United Nations Charter.2 In
