FIV - The German Information Network International Relations and Area Studies
and its Database WAO – World Affairs Online

FIV – The German Information Network International Relations and Area Studies is a cooperation of twelve independent German research institutes.

Together, they produce the database WAO – World Affairs Online, one of the largest bibliographic social science databases in Europe. The main subject areas covered are global and regional developments, foreign and security policy and social trends.

The FIV provides information for researchers and policy-makers as well as the general public, thus fulfilling the role of a national information resource, as outlined in the 1974 information programmes of the German federal government.
