CIA World Leaders Directory

The CIA publishes and updates the online directory of Chiefs of State and Cabinet Members of Foreign Governments regularly. The directory is intended to be used primarily as a reference aid and includes as many governments of the world as is considered practical, some of them not officially recognized by the United States.
Governments are listed in alphabetical order according to the most commonly used version of each country's name. The spelling of the personal names in this directory follows transliteration systems generally agreed upon by US Government agencies, except in the cases in which officials have stated a preference for alternate spellings of their names.
Information received as of 2 June 2008 has been used in preparation of this directory. More...

Executive Branch Dictionary

This dictionary is built on extracts from the CIA World Factbook 2008. The Factbook offers various information about more than 200 countries, among them information on Executive branch of each country. These entries hold several subfields:
Chief of state includes the name and title of the titular leader of the country who represents the state at official and ceremonial functions but may not be involved with the day-to-day activities of the government.
Head of government includes the name and title of the top administrative leader who is designated to manage the day-to-day activities of the government. For example, in the UK, the monarch is the chief of state, and the prime minister is the head of government. In the US, the president is both the chief of state and the head of government.
Cabinet includes the official name for this body of high-ranking advisers and the method for selection of members.
Elections includes the nature of election process or accession to power, date of the last election, and date of the next election.
Election results includes the percent of vote for each candidate in the last election. More...

EUROJARGON - italiano

Guida alla comprensione del "gergo europeo" :Il personale delle istituzioni dell'Unione europea e i media che si occupano delle attività dell'UE hanno la cattiva abitudine di utilizzare parole ed espressioni che capiscono soltanto loro. Tali parole ed espressioni costituiscono il cosiddetto "gergo europeo". Dal momento che risulta incomprensibile ai profani, il gergo europeo rappresenta un ostacolo per i comuni cittadini e le istituzioni europee si sforzano di evitarlo nell'informazione destinata al più vasto pubblico. Nel frattempo, la "Guida alla comprensione del gergo europeo" può essere d'aiuto. More...

Euroslangin käsikirja: Euroopan unionin kanssa paljon tekemisissä olevilla ihmisillä ja EU-asioita käsittelevillä toimittajilla on paha tapa käyttää sanoja ja ilmauksia, jotka vain he itse ymmärtävät. Kutsumme tässä näitä sanoja euroslangiksi. Koska ulkopuoliset eivät niitä juuri ymmärrä, niistä ei ole keskustelussa paljonkaan hyötyä. Siksi unionin toimielimet yrittävät välttää niiden käyttöä suurelle yleisölle suunnatussa tiedottamisessa. Ennen kuin slangista päästään, voi tästä slangisanastosta olla apua. More...

Chamamos a estas palavras e expressões o "jargão comunitário".

EUROJARGON - svenska

En klarspråksguide till EU-jargongen: De som arbetar i EU-institutionerna och mediafolk som arbetar med EU-frågor har ovanan att använda ord och uttryck som bara de själva förstår. Vi kallar dessa ord och uttryck för “EU-jargong”. Eftersom utomstående inte kan förstå dem, är EU-jargong knappast någon hjälp för vanliga människor, och i EU-institutionerna försöker man undvika att använda dem i information till allmänheten. Under tiden kan denna “klarspråksordbok” vara till hjälp. More...
