Our staff members (approximately 150) and consultants are drawn from a broad spectrum of backgrounds including academia, civil society, diplomacy and media. Crisis Group staff are based all over the world and cover some 70 actual and potential conflicts.
Crisis Group has more than twenty years of experience in working to prevent, manage and resolve deadly conflict.
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.
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.
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.
