Central Africa

ICG's Nairobi-based team monitors and reports on the fragile peace process in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi, the reconciliation process in Rwanda, and internal and external threats to peace in the Great Lakes and surrounding region.

Horn of Africa

In Sudan, ICG suggests strategies for peace in what remains one of the world’s longest-running and most destructive wars. In Somalia, political collapse in this failed state has created a power vacuum posing a danger both to Somalis and the outside world.

Southern Africa

The risk continues of major violence in Zimbabwe, following the badly flawed 2002 election. ICG analyses both local and regional impacts of the crisis, advancing strategies to prevent further escalation.

West Africa

With Sierra Leone emerging from its decade-long civil war, ICG Freetown-based analysts focus closely on how the country is consolidating the peace process, developments in Liberia - long a wellspring for instability - Guinea, new crisis emerging in Côte d'Ivoire and maintain a watching brief on the wider West African region.

ICG's Africa program is co-ordinated out of Brussels. For more information, see the related project pages (links above).
