Mission & purpose

The International Crisis Group is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation committed to preventing and resolving deadly conflict. What distinguishes Crisis Group from other organisations working on conflict prevention and resolution is a unique combination of field-based analysis, practical policy prescriptions and high-level advocacy, with key roles being played by highly experienced senior staff and by a distinguished Board of Trustees comprising leaders from the fields of politics, diplomacy, business and the media. Since 1995, Crisis Group’s reports and the advocacy associated with them have had a significant direct impact on conflict prevention, management and resolution across the world. Crisis Group has been visible and effective in assisting policymakers determine how best to handle terrorism, nuclear proliferation, impunity for international crimes, trafficking in arms and drugs and other problems associated with fragile or conflict-prone states. Increasingly, high-level interlocutors tell Crisis Group that its work in support of international peace and security has become indispensable.
