International organizations hold a remarkable place in world affairs with their efforts on making world a better place to live in. International organizations have been established with an aim to set the international agenda, to strengthen political relationships and to provide a place for initiatives that leads to development, etc. The first Intergovernmental organization was established in 1865 i.e. International Telecommunication Union, formed to create a permanent secretariat. Today we have huge number of International organizations working in various sectors, for example: World Trade Organization (WTO) is concerned with the regulations of international trade between nations whereas United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) works towards saving the lives as well as protecting the rights of refugees.
