International Organizations: A Workshop for Researchers

In this workshop, you will learn how to use the information created and disseminated by international organizations to support your own learning and research. International organizations— Intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and think tanks— often share reports and data related to specific policy areas of global or regional importance.

You will learn:

  • the difference between types of organizations
  • why these organizations come together and what types of information they produce, and
  • how to identify an organization as a source for your own research.

IGO and NGO research can be useful for many disciplines and is especially relevant to research dealing with policy, international relations, or global issues.
