Whitaker's is also an excellent introduction to world politics with in-depth profiles of international organisations, the European Union and every country of the world. Our dedicated team of both in-house editors and specialist contributors spend a total of around 6,000 hours updating Whitaker's annually--this includes contacting thousands of individuals to update their own organization's details, researching information from official annual reports, and gathering statistics and facts from the most up-to-date authoritative sources available.
