useful ressources

The directory:

The directory includes the references of research centres, information and documentary centres, collectives of associations, NGOs, international organisations, trades unions etc., working for a more responsible world of solidarity.


The dph site (dialogues, proposals, stories for global citizenship) is comprised of a data bank of “experiences” representing 7500 sheets, as well as articles sharing experience, analysis, works read as well as 30 or so files. This project was born in 1986 from the desire to link people and groups working towards the construction of a responsible world of solidarities. We hope to make both memory and experiential reflection available on this resource site. We also hope to enhance the analysis and the experiences through an easy search process and the availability of results that can prove useful to citizens’ actions.

Bibliographical base (only in French):

The bibliographical base contains over 40,000 references to works (with summaries), articles from magazines, reports, grey literature, reports on meetings, missions and surveys. This database was established in 1988, and can be consulted on the Ritimo site. It reflects the immense wealth of information contained in the Ritimo centres, in terms of the diversity of sources and themes it covers. All the documents in the database can be consulted or borrowed at the centres that are members of the Ritimo network.

Magazines (only in French):

400 periodical reviews or magazines on international solidarity, sustainable development, North-South relations, social alternatives and human rights are available. The details of the editor as well as the documentary centres that are members of the Ritimo network that subscribe to these reviews are listed.


Our list of links does not claim to be exhaustive. It represents the key sites that we use to update the rinoceros site (in French, English and Spanish). For a complete list, please refer to the international solidarity directory below.
