International Oil Working Group (IOWG)
United States of America
The IOWG worked towards the implementation of the oil embargo as initiated by the UN General Assembly. It grew out of the Sanctions Working Group, established in 1979. It researched topics relating to the oil embargo, monitored tanker movements, gave testimonies at UN meetings and distributed information. The organisation closed down in 1987.
The University of Massachusetts, Amherst, holds a substantial collection of the organisation and it contains administrative papers, correspondence, printed materials, UN documents and newsletters.
