  • IGOs are established by treaties requiring member ratification, and which act as the charter for the group. They are distinct from task groups or simple coalitions such as the G8. Well-known IGOs include the United Nations, Interpol, the European Union and the African Union.
  • The seeming decline in the number of IGOs in the late 1980s is the result of the merger of several previously independent IGOs.
  • The official languages of the United Nations are Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish.
  • There are currently 16 official UN peacekeeping missions throughout the world.
  • The International Court of Justice is the primary judicial organ of the United Nations. It is located in the Peace Palace in The Hague (Netherlands). The court is composed of fifteen judges elected for nine year terms by the UN General Assembly and the Security Council.
  • The WTO is headquartered in Geneva, and has 153 members. It functions primarily as a negotiating forum on trade for member nations.
  • The World Bank functions as a cooperative, with 186 member countries. Shareholders are represented by a board of governors who meet annually. The five largest shareholders are France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
  • The European Union is both an economic and a political partnership. Its goal is increased peace, prosperity and freedom for its citizens.
  • From few, to many. Expansion of the European Union has allowed it to emerge as a superpower.
  • Members of the European Parliament do not sit in national blocks, but in Europe-wide political groups.
