Registered Foreign NGO Representative Offices Interactive Map and Filterable Table

The following interactive graphics display information about currently-registered foreign NGOs’ representative offices in China as provided by the Ministry of Public Security website. Below these graphics is a list of foreign NGO offices that have de-registered and are no longer formally operating in China.

The interactive map shows the approximate location of foreign NGOs’ representative offices in China. Click on a foreign NGO name in the sidebar to zoom in to that location on the map and display a pop-up containing the NGO’s Chinese name, country/territory of origin, Professional Supervisory Unit, sector(s) of work, date of registration, and permitted area of activity. Click on a pin on the map to zoom in to that pin and display its pop-up. Click and drag on the map to re-center it. Office locations shown on the map may not be exact and are only used to show the overall distribution of these offices throughout mainland China.

Below the map, a filterable table provides the same information in a searchable text format. Type your search term(s) in the fields above each column to filter the results. You can filter multiple columns simultaneously.
