About Us

The International Crisis Group is an independent organization working to prevent wars and shape policies that will build a more peaceful world.

Crisis Group sounds the alarm to prevent deadly conflict. We build support for the good governance and inclusive politics that enable societies to flourish. We engage directly with a range of conflict actors to seek and share information, and to encourage intelligent action for peace.

Our work is urgently needed as the world is confronted with both new and chronic existing conflicts, each of which has devastating humanitarian, social and economic costs. Efforts to resolve conflicts are complicated by the profound shift in geopolitics, as well as the increasing prominence of non-state actors ranging from religious militants to criminal gangs.

See our introductory brochure: Preventing War. Shaping Peace.

In this more polarized, fragmented and dangerous world, Crisis Group’s work points a way forward. War is not inevitable; it is a man-made disaster. We must mobilize political leaders to heed early warnings and take early action to avoid looming conflicts. And we must build more creative and flexible frameworks for international diplomacy.

The consequences of inaction are too great:

  • For the first time ever, the number of people displaced due to conflict and persecution surpassed 100 million in May 2022.
  • An estimated 120,648 people were killed in conflicts in 2021.


Mexico’s state institutions have been bedeviled for decades by widespread corruption and powerful transnational criminal organizations. Crime and the “war on drugs” have destabilized the country and fuelled violence; meanwhile, thousands of refugees and migrants flee through Mexico from similar volatility in Central America.

Crisis Group focuses on addressing criminal violence, institutional corruption, trafficking and migration. Our aim is to help solve challenges to security posed by global criminal networks, local armed groups and the elusiveness of state rule.
