    Goals / remit

The International Crisis Group is an independent, non-partisan source of analysis and advice to governments and intergovernmental bodies like the United Nations, the European Union and the World Bank, on the prevention and resolution of deadly conflict.

Crisis Group’s reports, and the advocacy associated with them, aim to have 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.

There are five main ways in which Crisis Group plays a key role in preventing and resolving conflict:

- Ringing early warning alarm bells through its long-term presence in and coverage of many conflict situations, in its reports, in the monthly CrisisWatch bulletin and in specific ‘conflict risk alerts’ (eg in Mali, Sudan, Syria);

- Producing independent and expert field-based analysis and advice on specific policy issues vis-à-vis scores of conflict or potential conflict situations around the world, helping policymakers in the UN Security Council, the European Union, regional organisations, donor countries and the countries at risk themselves do better in preventing, managing and resolving conflict;

- Providing objective analysis and detailed actor mapping unobtainable elsewhere on developments regarding conflict, mass violence and terrorism (eg, on the Jemaah Islamiyah in Indonesia and the FARC in Colombia);

- Offering new strategic thinking on some of the world’s most intractable conflicts and crises, challenging or refining prevailing wisdom (eg, on Kosovo, Myanmar, Sudan/South Sudan, Somalia, the Arab-Israeli conflict and Afghanistan/Pakistan); and

- Focusing international attention on forgotten conflicts and peacebuilding processes (eg, on Guinea-Bissau, Sri Lanka, Nagorno-Karabakh, Colombia and Guatemala) when the world’s attention has shifted elsewhere.
