Our Impact

Shaping the Politics of Peace

Crisis Group’s reporting and advocacy make real change in the world, incrementally over time and often against long odds. On a daily basis, our work informs policy discussions, highlights opportunities for effective early action, guides media coverage and draws attention to under-reported conflicts and humanitarian emergencies. Nevertheless, impact is always hard to quantify. Originally begun as information papers for our donors, we now make our Impact Notes publicly available to give a glimpse of what we do and how we think we are making progress in pursuit of peace.
