The goal of igoR is to provide access and to extract information from the Intergovernmental Organizations Database (IGOs), version 3, provided by the Correlates of War Project (Pevehouse et al. 2020).

The dataset (V3) includes information of 534 IGO from 1816 to 2014, as well as membership information.

Source: Intergovernmental Organizations (v3).
