Learn more about our methodology

Crisis Group has more than twenty years of experience in working to prevent, manage and resolve deadly conflict.

Field research

Our expert analysts engage directly with all parties to a conflict as they conduct research on the ground, share multiple perspectives and propose practical policy solutions.

Sharp analysis

We publish comprehensive reports and timely commentaries to inform decision making and shape the public debate on how to limit threats to peace and security.

High-level advocacy

We work with heads of government, policymakers, media, civil society, and conflict actors themselves to sound the alarm of impending conflict and to open paths to peace.

In Darfur, for example, International Crisis Group was ringing the alarm bell … They gave us insight. We didn’t always agree with them. It’s not their role to come into agreement with us. It’s their role to reflect ground truth
