Overviews or profiles of foreign countries by subject

 

What is a country profile?

Country profiles, sometimes referred to as "country overviews" or "country reports", are brief guides that provide information or overviews on different countries throughout the world.  Overviews can provide a brief survey of a country's geography, history, politics, economy, international relations, culture, travel, current affairs, media, and a number of other topics.

 

Country profiles vary in how much information they provide and the type of information they provide.  Some overviews are brief while others provide an in-depth survey of specific topics and statistics

 

Country profiles are an excellent starting point for research or getting to know a country before travel, study abroad or for general information for papers and projects.
