[Yasmin_discussions] networking 5.0


for our networking discussion- here is the union of international associations
created 100 years ago



The Union of International Associations (UIA) is a research institute
and documentation centre, based in Brussels. It was founded one
hundred years ago, in 1907, by Henri La Fontaine (Nobel Peace Prize
laureate of 1913), and Paul Otlet, a founding father of what is now
called information science.

Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature,
the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision
of information on international organizations, international
associations and their global challenges since 1907.

Publicly the UIA is best known for the Yearbook of International
Organizations; the Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential;
the International Congress Calendar; and its former journal
Transnational Associations. [Read more about our activities]

In its on-going efforts to facilitate understanding of the nature and
complexities of the international community of organizations the UIA
has become a cutting-edge technical centre with high standing in the
academic, governmental, and business domains.

The UIA has consultative status with ECOSOC and with UNESCO.
