Sources of Information for Biographies

For several years now the editors have followed a policy of requesting biographical material from the organizations with which it is in regular contact. For some of the larger organizations the editors also searched for further information on the Internet, generally starting with the homepages of the organizations concerned. The information thus collected was used to up-date or create the biographical entries included here. In addition, the database of the Yearbook of International Organizations was consulted and the names of new officers were extracted for inclusion in this edition.
