Throughout the pre-1914 period, Belgium was the main host country of the international movement. The UIA was founded in 1907 under the name Central Office of International Associations by Paul Otlet (considered one of the fathers of information science) and Henri La Fontaine (Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1913) to enhance collaboration between organizations, and to serve as a centre for documentation. The UIA partners with a number of intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, as well as other entities that help further its aims.
