Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization
New Delhi, India,
The Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization (AALCO) is an international governmental organization formed in 1956, initially to serve as an advisory board to member states on matters of international law. It was an outgrowth of the Bandung Conference, held in Indonesia during April 1955, which led to the establishment of the Asian Legal Consultative Committee (ALCC). In April 1958, it changed its name to the Asian-African Legal Consultative Committee (AALCC) to reflect the growth of its membership beyond the African side of the UAR. Since 2001, it has been known by its current name, the AALCO, reflecting the growth of its international status; currently an Intergovernmental organization having received a standing UN invitation to participate as an observer in the sessions and the work of the General Assembly and maintaining a permanent office at Headquarters.
