Governments & Foundations

Crisis Group enjoys strong relationships with government and foundation donors, whose long-term funding is critical to our organisation’s effectiveness. For governments, Crisis Group fills a vital niche as diplomats’ access to key conflict actors is increasingly hindered by security concerns and political obstacles. Senior officials tell Crisis Group that our reports are indispensable, with a unique emphasis on the political foundations of international peace and security.

We engage substantively with our institutional donors through private policy briefings, roundtables, and rapid response from field experts and senior staff. Crisis Group in turn benefits from this sustained engagement and knowledge sharing with its donors. Our partners have come to rely on our information and analysis on developing emergencies.

In June 2010, the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) added Crisis Group to its Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list, recognising that our actions to prevent or resolve conflict help poorer countries' development performance. All contributions to Crisis Group can be reported as Official Development Assistance (ODA), thus helping donor governments meet their ODA target.

Crisis Group produces compelling reports about conflicts where Turkey has big stakes.… We may not all concur with the conclusions of such reports, but their aim is not to seek a consensus of opinion … [These reports] are innovative and provocative, spelling out things not said by others.

Yaşar Yakış

MP, former Foreign Minister of Turkey
