- Resolution 1483 (22 May 2003)
Keywords: UN Sanctions Security Council Resolutions
Lifts non-military sanctions (para 10). It also recognises Britain and the United States as occupying powers ('The Authority'), and calls on them to attempt to improve security and stability, and provide opportunities for Iraqis to determine their political future. It creates the position of ‘UN Special Representative to Iraq’, to coordinate UN activity, and requires the establishment of Development Fund for Iraq. Summaries and analysis can be found on pages 10-13 of the Open Society Institute paper "Reconstructing Iraq: a guide to the issues", and in this article from the American Society of International Law. A Parliamentary research paper (2 June 2003) provides a British government perspective. For earlier drafts, see the initial US-UK draft (9 May) and the revised US-UK-Spain draft (15 May). The Open Society Institute criticized aspects of this resolution, and suggested changes to allow greater supervision of the occupying powers.
