Country profiles are a great way to learn about the country you are studying or visiting. Many profiles provide historical backgrounds, summaries of important people and events, and other political, economic, and social information. Some may also include current events. 


  • The organization preparing the profile has its own unique viewpoint.
  • Using multiple country profiles will give you a more complete picture.
