The Union of International Associations (UIA) is a research institute and documentation centre, based in Brussels. It was founded over one hundred years ago, 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.

"The Yearbook of International Organizations is the definitive directory of more than 75,000 governmental and non-governmental nonprofit organizations worldwide, including both active and dormant entities. […] The fact that the organizations themselves are the principal sources speaks to the credibility of the information in the profiles […] the annual subscription to the digital version is the obvious choice […] Summing Up: Highly recommended" - D. Ettinger, George Washington University, in: Choice, Vol. 55 No. 7 (March 2018)
