Yearbook of International Organizations Online

The Yearbook is a database of detailed profiles of more than 60,000 international organizations in all disciplines. Active, inactive, and dormant organizations are included, as well as both non-governmental (NGO) and intergovernmental (IGO) organizations. The database covers 300 countries and territories, and includes approximately 1,200 new entries each year. Besides physical and virtual contact information, each record details the structure, staff, languages, finances, aims, activities, events, publications, statistical information, and analyses of the organization. Records can be formatted into Excel, CSV, and Word. (Updates every 6-8 weeks)
