Compiling and disseminating information and data on international organizations has been one of the UIA’s core activities since 1907. This vast resource of information is published in the Yearbook of International Organizations – the most comprehensive reference work and information resource on international non-profit organizations and associations worldwide.
The over 66,000 international organizations maintained in our database include Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs) and International Nongovernmental Organizations (INGOs) in 300 countries and territories. Approximately 1,200 new organizations are added each year.
The Yearbook includes detailed descriptions of international organizations, and also includes relationships and cross-links with other listed international organizations. In addition, biographical information is provided on principal officers, as well as bibliographical information on the organization’s main publications and information services.
Statistics on international organizations are summed up in separate charts, tables and other visual representations, giving an overview of a broad range of organizational data, and making it easy to compare and identify trends.
