  • Mission statement: “The International Crisis Group (ICG) is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation, …working through field-based analysis and high-level advocacy to prevent and resolve deadly conflict. … [ICG] produces analytical reports containing practical recommendations targeted at key international decision-takers.”
  • 40% of ICG’s 11 million dollar budget comes from governments, including the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and UK Department for International Development.  ICG also receives significant financial support from the Open Society Institute, Ford Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation. 
  • ICG’s Middle East and North Africa Program Director is Robert Malley, a former official in the Clinton Administration on the Middle East.  Malley has blamed Israel and former Prime Minister Barak for the failure of the Oslo process and the 2001 Camp David summit, and has supported resuming funding to the Hamas government.  ICG’s reports on this region generally reflect Malley’s political agenda and perspective.
