List of Important International Organizations with their Headquarters:

This article provides you list of important International Organizations and with their Headquarters.An international organization is a body that promotes voluntary cooperation and coordination between or among its members.There are many types of International Organizations, but one way of categorizing them is to distinguish between intergovernmental organizations and supranational organizations.These organizations make major impact on countries, laws and even global prices from time to time. While Amnesty International is concerned with global peacekeeping, OPEC maintains stability in global demand and supply of oil.

Intergovernmental Organizations

Intergovernmental organization is composed of nation-states and it promotes voluntary co-operation and coordination among its members.Decisions and agreements reached in this type of organization however are not enforceable, and the members remain independent. The main thing about IGO is that the members do not surrender any power to it. The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization.DO check here to more about United Nations Organization

Supranational Organizations

supranational organization is different because member states do surrender power in specific areas to the higher organization. Decisions taken by a supranational organization must be obeyed by the member states. Often there are courts to determine when violations have occurred, although frequently enforcement mechanisms are not as effective as they are within nation states.
