Their headquarters are in Brussels, Belgium. Founded in 1907 by the 1913 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Henri La Fontaine, and Paul Otlet, a founding father of what is now called information science.

Its stated goals (taken from its website) include:

  • Facilitate the evolution of the activities of the world-wide network of nonprofit organizations, especially nongovernmental or voluntary associations;
  • Promote understanding of how international bodies represent valid interests in every field of human activity or belief, whether scientific, religious, artistic, educational, trade or labour;
  • Enable these initiatives to develop and counterbalance each other creatively, in response to world problems, by collecting information on these bodies and their interrelationships;
  • Make such information available to them, and to others who may benefit from this network;
  • Experiment with more meaningful and action-oriented ways of presenting such information as a catalyst for the emergence of more appropriate organizations;
  • Promote research on the legal, administrative and other problems common to these international associations, especially in their contacts with governmental bodies.
