Does anyone know of a dictionary that translates Russian names of western institutios into the standard English names (for example, what is the Управление Верховного Комиссариата по делам Беженцев called in English?)
Thank you!

To answer your specific question, it's UNHCR, or the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. See www.unhcr.org You can click on Russian for the Russian site, too.

Yuri, could you tell us what some of those books are or send us in the right direction?

The "rightest" direction would be very close to you. It's http://www.proz.com/?sp=kog

What I meant by my answer was that the question was too broad and there is never a "magical book" where you find all the words you need at the moment. Sometimes you spend half a day looking for one acronym or even one word. That's what ProZ and kudoz specifically are about.
Sorry if I wasn't too clear

Some dictionaries Nov 18, 2003

Вот тут есть русско-английский словарь по правам человек:

http://www.hro.org/editions/glossary/index.htm

У меня на полке стоит Словарь прав человека и народов, М. "Международные отношения", 1993

Кроме того, посмотрите в этом форуме тему "Favorites". Может быть, там найдется что-нибудь полезное для Вас.

Вроде бы, этот сайт Вам будет полезен.

Но Вам нужно было бы задать отдельный вопрос, чтобы не смешивать темы.
