A non-governmental organization or non-governmental organisation is an organization that generally is formed independent from government.

Types of NGOs?

- INGO: an international NGO. For example, the Conference of INGOs of the Council of Europe is comprised of more than 300 participating INGOs.

- GONGO: this means government-organized NGO, often derogatory. Foreign Policy describes GONGOs as a government-backed NGOs set up to advocate on the behalf of a repressive regime in the international arena.

- QUANGO: chiefly a British term, often derogatory. A quango is a quasi-autonomous non-governmental organization that relies on public funding. Its senior officials are appointed by the government. A Financial Times opinion piece by British economist John Kay asserted that quangos are seen as useless and are often staffed by quangocrats.

- ENGO: an environmental NGO, for example, Greenpeace or the World Wildlife Fund. Both groups operate internationally in addition to advocating for the environment. They are often simply referred to as NGOs.
