1. State administrations of all levels that fulfil international functions, particularly in international cooperation.
- State administrations of the North ranging from the policy- and programme-forming ministerial level to the municipal level where direct partnerships with regional and local authorities (town twinning and city networks) and NGOs of the South are maintained.
- State administrations of the South which are involved in international cooperation as direct implementing partners or are active in other international cooperation projects – such as intra-African cooperation and integration processes.
2. Administrations of NGOs which fulfil international functions, particularly in international cooperation.
- NGOs of the North with functions in international politics, in the political education of adults, or in the implementation of measures in countries of the South with or without government support.
- NGOs of the South, especially so-called CSOs (civil society organisations) that monitor the social and political development, and formulate interests vis-a-vis national governments, or that act directly as implementing partners of projects of international cooperation.
