Arab-Israeli Conflict
Egypt/North Africa


From Amman, ICG analyses the long and short-term factors that feed violent conflict, identifying ways of increasing the capacity and will of governments to cooperate on issues of internal and international security.

Arab-Israeli Conflict

ICG’s work in Israel, the occupied territories and Israel’s Arab neighbours is focused on new and more comprehensive political and diplomatic strategies to address the sources of conflict, and deal with the main factors within Israel and Arab societies hindering the achievement of sustainable peace.

Egypt/North Africa

In Algeria, ICG continues to monitor the state's efforts to overcome a decade of civil war, and suggest ways of accelerating and managing the transition to a law-bound government. ICG also monitors developments threatening peace internally and externally in Egypt and the other countries of North Africa.


ICG analyses the underlying causes of tensions and conflicts in the Gulf region and suggests ways of alleviating them, while exploring appropriate means to promote good governance, sustainable economic growth, and regional stability and security.
